Congratulations Andre Dawson

Congratulations, Andre Dawson. Newest electee into the Hall of Fame. He's the only one this year to be elected. I'm guessing Bert Blyleven and Roberto Alomar will make it next year.

I was just watching a video of Dawson clips. He hit a triple in Houston, and Jose Cruz with his big mop was chasing the ball down at the fence in that rainbow uni. Man, those guys should be in the Hall of Fame just for hair and uniforms!


  1. yeah but he's going to choose to be a Cub on his plaque and my fave memories of him are decidedly as an Expo

  2. I was lucky to have seen every game he played in Wrigley Field as a Cub... as well as many games when he was an Expo. As a baseball fan since 1945, and including my 23 years of residing in the Bay area.... I have seen my fair share of great players, and many who made it up to the big leagues for a cup of coffee. I was lucky to see Jackie Robinson, Stan Musial and Willie Mays among those who made it to Cooperstown. I am happy that Andre, will join baseball's greatest players this summer when he will be inducted into the "Hall of Fame". Back in 1987, a reporter asked me what I thought of Andre? I said" Many people call Andre awesome, because it rhymes with Dawson... but even if his name was Schwartz, he still would be awesome!"
