Wow, what a week. Sure, there was a lot of driving, but my dad, brother and I went on the trip of a lifetime this past week. Planned a year ago, my dad suggested we go see the baseball Hall of Fame induction ceremony, which was held last Sunday in Cooperstown, N.Y. I knew Greg Maddux with his 355 wins, Tom Glavine with his 305 wins, and Frank Thomas with his 521 home runs and over 1,700 RBI would all be first-ballot hall-of-famers, but we all got a treat when three more were added to the induction.
