2015 Hall of Fame Weekend

The Baseball Hall of Fame will be inducting four new members into its ranks later today: Craig Biggio, Randy Johnson, John Smoltz, and Pedro Martinez.  Looking at the pictures featuring these gentlemen, it sure is strange to see them all looking so young again.

Nevertheless, one can hardly argue that the initiation of each of these players into the Hall is well-deserved.  While the celebration has been going on all weekend for this ceremony, the formal induction ceremony and the delivery of speeches by these four men will be taking place today, beginning at 1:30 eastern time.  You can find complete details about the proceedings here.

    The last couple of classes have been particularly formidable.

  2. I had the pleasure of watching from seats behind home plate J. Smoltz pitch a game against the Giants. Precision was the name of the game that day.
