To put a cap on last weekend's glorious Hall of Fame festivities, we talk to the outgoing Hall of Fame President Jeff Idelson on a new "30 With Murti" podcast.

Idelson has spent the last 25 years in service at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York, finishing with a 12-year run as the Hall's president. He is one of the most visible people behind the museum and its connection to the game's part in celebrating its past.

He leaves Cooperstown to start his new venture at the other end of the spectrum. It's called Grassroots Baseball, and its focus is on youth baseball and growing the next generation of Hall of Famers.

For stories about life in Cooperstown and Hall of Fame moments as well as tales from the early '90s Yankees -- where Jeff worked for five years under George Steinbrenner -- listen to this latest episode of "30 With Murti."
