Newsworthy – July 24, 2011 – Hall of Fame Induction

24 Jul

1992 Fleer - Roberto Alomar

Congratulations to Roberto Alomar, Pat Gillick and Bert Blyleven on their induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame today, but especially to Alomar and Gillick, because of their contributions to the Toronto Blue Jays’ 1992 and 1993 World Series Championship teams and my bias as a Jays fan.

Alomar also once hit a big home run off Dennis Eckersley that changed the Blue Jays into a team that could get the job done, and then rubbed it in for the A’s a bit.  Eck was never the same again after that hit.
