Baseball Hall of Fame Class of 2014

Congratulations to the Hall of Fame Class of 2014!  The induction ceremony for these six greats took place yesterday in Cooperstown, New York.  Those inducted: 300-game winners Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine, slugger Frank Thomas and managers Joe Torre, Bobby Cox and La Russa.  Having been witness to the Braves of the ’90s as I grew up, a part of me wishes fervently that I could have attended the ceremony.  Maddux and Glavine were masters of their craft, and it was always a treat to watch these pitchers pinpoint their pitches with remarkable accuracy.  These men were proof that one did not have to be big, strong, and bulky to be successful in professional sports, and that style, brains, and finesse, in many ways, counts for so much more than brawn.
