Jul 22 2016HALL of FAME SEASON
It's always fun in slow sports times to think about which players you're watching today may end up in the Hall of Fame. That goes at any level, high school, college, pro. I'm sure the Hall of Fame was not on Mike Piazza's mind when the Dodgers drafted him the 62nd round. Ken Griffey, Jr was around pro baseball his whole life, it seems he was destined for greatness. Those two go into the Baseball Hall of Fame Sunday in Cooperstown. Locally, it doesn't even seem that long ago that Jim Thome and Albert Belle lit up Jacobs Field. On July 30 they go into the Indians' Hall, though Belle won't be there (more on that next week). And you think the RNC was crazy, wait for two weeks, when the Cheeseheads invade our area to salute Brett Favre. Can't even get a ticket fro that.
