I have met this HOFer at an autograph show...and he was by far the nicest baseball player i have ever met. Very friendly and very funny.
I was about, about to pick someone else, had it all written in and everything so he better fall to me (Im afraid a2d will pick him for some reason)
Instead, Ill select someone who should undoubtedly be in the HOF
