Baseball Hall of Fame Welcomes Class of 2014

Some of baseball’s greatest legends descended upon Cooperstown, NY on Sunday July 27 as a new class was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. This year, an estimated 50,000 people attended the ceremony as the Hall of Fame welcomed three players–Frank Thomas, Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux–and three managers–Bobby Cox, Joe Torre and Tony La Russa. All of this year’s inductees were understandably moved; especially Torre, who made headlines for forgetting to thank his most famous boss, the late Yankee owner George Steinbrenner. Regardless, Torre gave a moving speech that no doubt summed up many people’s feelings about the day and about the game. “Baseball is a game of life,” he said. “It’s not perfect, but it feels like it is. That’s the magic of it. We are responsible for giving it the respect it deserves. Our sport is part of the American soul, and it’s ours to borrow, just for a while…This game is a gift and I am humbled to accept its greatest honor.” We bet there wasn’t a dry eye in the house!
