The New York Times Unleashed a Sweet ‘Burn’ on the Baseball Hall of Fame Today

Here's the sports editor explaining why they chose to leave it blank:

“Wayne Kamidoi, our boundary pushing art designer came up with the idea, and Jay Schreiber our baseball editor saw the chance to capture the very old, very dispiriting story of steroids in baseball in a freshly powerful way. Yes, it was not a surprise that Bonds and Clemens didn’t make it. But felt like history had spoken. How to convey that to our readers? I think we did it — a striking, profound emptiness.”


Nah. You made a big deal about the decision of a tourist attraction in the middle of nowhere and wasted a few thousand trees in the process. Well done.
