Barry Larkin and Andre Dawson sound off

 

It seems every Baseball Hall of Famer has a position on PED users for entry to Cooperstown.  Of course, with this year’s ballot, can we really be surprised?

Recently Barry Larkin, who was inducted last year, told the Associated Press that “If you cheated you made a decision” and did not deserve to get in.  He was specifically referring to Sosa, Clemens and Bonds who are on this year’s Hall of Fame ballot and have been directly linked to Performance Enhancing Drugs. 

The former Cincinnati Reds star is not alone.  Yesterday, Andre Dawson, who was himself inducted in 2010, has also stated the same.  “The Hawk” took nine years to enter the Baseball Hall of Fame.

This will continue.  Many members of the Baseball Hall of Fame have said this, and you can expect this to continue.  Our only question is who will speak out next!

Tom Cheek Enters the Baseball HOF

We would like to congratulate Tom Cheek for entering the Baseball Hall of Fame posthumously for his work as the Toronto Blue Jays play by play announcer on radio. Cheek called the first 4,306 regular season game for Toronto and has the signature call of “Touch em all Joe! You’ll never hit a bigger home run in your life” when Jays’ outfielder, Joe Carter belted the home run that cemented Toronto’s second consecutive World Series in the mid 90’s. Cheek is the winner of the Ford Frick Award for Broadcasting Excellence. This award reminds us how much the Baseball Hall of Fame matters in the canon that is North American Sports.
