The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum announced Monday it has accepted Roberto Alomar's resignation from their board of directors, according to Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.

Alomar had held the position since July 2019.

While he has resigned from his position with the museum, Alomar will continue to be an inducted member of Cooperstown.

"Alomar's plaque will remain on display in the Hall of Fame in recognition of his accomplishments in the game, as his enshrinement reflects his eligibility and the perspective of the BBWAA voters at that time," chairman of the board Jane Forbes Clark said in the statement. "When he was elected to the Hall of Fame by the Baseball Writers' Association of American in the class of 2011, he was an eligible candidate in good standing."

Alomar's resignation comes in the wake of Major League Baseball's decision to place the Hall of Famer on the ineligible list following an independent investigation into sexual misconduct. After reviewing the findings, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred announced late last week that Alomar violated the league's policies and the league terminated his contract as a consultant.

The Toronto Blue Jays also cut ties with Alomar, pledging to remove his name from their Level of Excellence and remove the banner celebrating his Hall of Fame induction.
