Hall of Fame Afternoon

I wanted to extend my congratulations to both Barry Larkin and Ron Santo on their induction into the Hall of Fame.  If you don't already know, the Cooperstown Hall of Fame Induction ceremony is happening right now. 

I firmly recommend going to Cooperstown at least once in your life.  The place is like a Mecca for Baseball fans.  I had a opportunity to visit the Hall in 1999 on Hall of Fall weekend, and I will never forget it.  That year George Brett, Orlando Cepeda, Nolan Ryan, Robin Yount, and Negro Leaguer Smokey Joe Williams were inducted.

In keeping with the weekend, I wanted to share some videos of Dodger Hall of Famer Induction Speeches.  Unfortunately, I could only find Duke Snider's speech from 1980.  See it below.

Of course, I couldn't resist posting this up.  Here is Bill Murray's induction speech into the South Atlantic League Hall of Fame. It'a a gas!
