COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) — The senior vice president of the Baseball Hall of Fame is retiring at the end of the year.

Bill Haase will wrap up a career of more than 30 years in baseball, including 13 as a top leader at the Hall of Fame.

Haase also spent 18 years with the Detroit Tigers organization, eventually ending as executive vice president and chief operating officer.

Baseball Hall of Fame President Jeff Idelson says Haase’s “tremendous work ethic and commitment to excellence are indelible standards he will leave behind.”
