Hall of Fame Class of 2012

Monday morning was quite exciting for former Reds shortstop-and now Hall of Famer- Barry Larkin. Some where around 1-2 pm on Monday, Commissioner of Baseball, Bud Selig, called informing Larkin that he had been inducted into The National Base Ball Hall of Fame, receiving over 86% of the ballets. Larkin played 19 years all with the Cincinnati Reds. When you look at his career  statistics it’s a wonder it took him this long to get in. He was the first ever short-stop to have a 30-30 season(30 home runs and 30 stolen bases) and in 1995 he won the M.V.P award. A twelve time all-star and 9 time silver slugger along with 3 gold gloves and a World Series title, I would say its a well deserved honor.
