DDT - 04:52

RIP Ernie Banks (1931-2015), first-ballot Baseball Hall of Famer. "Mr. Cub," the prototype of the power-hitting shortstop and a great ambassador of the game, now reunited with teammate Ron Santo.


DDT - 19:13

Baseball Hall of Fame: Cooperstown justice for Craig Biggio! More surprised if Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, and John Smoltz did not get it. Four HoFers in one shot--very good show in 2015.


DDT - 19:46

Baseball's Golden Era Committee throws shut-out: No candidates on ballot elected. My DDT's Pop Flies article asks "Are There Any Hall of Fame Players Left?" in Golden Era. Apparently not.


DDT - 18:36

RIP Jean Beliveau (1931-2014), Hockey Hall of Fame centre as captain of the Montreal Canadiens. One of the all-time greats; two-time Hart Trophy winner. Adieu, Le Gros Bill.


DDT - 18:16

RIP Pat Quinn (1943-2014), former NHL defenseman, coach, member of the induction committee for the Hockey Hall of Fame. At the blue line and behind the boards for eternity now.


DDT - 16:54

Hall of Fame drummer for AC/DC Phil Rudd charged with attempting to arrange a murder in New Zealand. Someone has to say it: "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap"?

DDT - 22:38

Rafael Palmeiro is gone from the ballot after four rounds. Who else has 3000+ hits and 500+ HR? Aaron, Mays, Murray--all first-ballot HoFers . . .

    48. Louie Dampier The quintessential ABA player, Louie Dampier came from Adolph Rupp's Kentucky runt teams.  Dampier found a home with the Kentucky Colonels becoming one of the only players in ABA history to play in all nine ABA seasons.  Dampier was a point guard who could shoot almost at will; they basically made the three point line for this guy!  One of…
