What a terrific day at Cooperstown on Sunday.
Six well-deserving additions entered the Baseball Hall of Fame. Congratulations to Joe Torre, Bobby Cox, Tony LaRussa, Frank Thomas, Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux. They were all no-brainers to make it in.
It was truly a special ceremony. I loved listening to Thomas’ emotional speech. It made me think back to the time I saw Thomas in his first at-bat in the minor leagues. It came in Sarasota and I had a feeling he was going to be a special player. I have been fortunate to see a lot of youngsters who made it big in the majors. I remember seeing Derek Jeter and his manager at the time, Jake Gibbs, said that the young man was going to be a superstar. He was so right.
Congrats to the newest members of the Baseball Hall of Fame.
