Class of 2007

Yesterday Cal Ripken Jr. and Tony Gwynn were inducted to the Hall of Fame. I have always been a fan of Cal Ripken and is one of my favorite players of all-time. The night the Yankees were in Baltimore near the end of the 1998 season and a healthy Ripken decided not to play, ending his streak at 2,632 games Willie Randolph, along with the rest of the Yankees saluted Ripken. Don Burke at The Star-Ledger writes about how Randolph feels about the 2007 Hall of Fame class.

Randolph had this to say about Gwynn and Ripken; "They were great ballplayers," the Mets manager said. "I'm happy for both of them. They were true ballplayers. They played the game the right way."
