Yankee and Indians second baseman Joe Gordon has been elected by the Veterans Committee into the Baseball Hall of Fame. This is a pick that is sure to be discussed and argued about for years to come.
I will admit I had no idea who he was when he was announced. My mind was a total blank. I remember sitting at my desk at work, shaking my head while screaming, "Joe Gordon!?!" I guess any result that does not include Gil Hodges or Maury Wills as inductees will be a disappointment.
Anyway, congratulations "Flash" and welcome to one of the most hallowed halls in America.
