Here is my email to the National Baseball Hall of Fame board of directors:
Dear Sirs and Madam:
I am writing to you to request the dismissal of the National Baseball Hall of Fame president Dale A. Petroskey.
I am appalled by this individual's actions in the events surrounding the cancellation of the planned celebration for the film "Bull Durham". He had used his position inappropriately in canceling the event. He brought universal condemnation down upon the decision. Also, the taint of politics has sullied the Hall by this man's actions, which were, according to him, intended to effect the reverse.
And now his apology dated Friday, April 18 makes it clear that he is content with doing nothing to rectify his mistakes. I believe that you have no possible option but to remove him from his position.
I cannot countenance paying admission to your fine museum while it is headed by such a morally reprehensible individual. That is the reason I am writing you in hopes that he be removed. If Mr. Petroskey remains in his current position, I have no other option but regrettably to avoid all interaction with your museum.
