    ^ This. I'm sorry it didn't happen while he was around to enjoy it.

    Agree with you both. Congrats to Ron's family and friends. I wish he could have seen this.

    Shouldn't this be in "Other Sports"?

    Probally, but more people will see it in here.

    About time is right and a shame he isn't w/us to celebrate.

    Now if we could just get late Blue Jays broadcaster Tom Cheek in there too. That's also a long time coming/should have happened by now Induction too.

    I remember every year the campaign the fans would put on to get him inducted. His baseball years were well before I was born, but I'm exceedingly happy that he has finally been included. It's a shame that it came one year too late, he really deserved to celebrate this inclusive accomplishment.
