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.

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.
