    I've been to the past 6 Induction Galas. Hope the HOF doesn't raise the price for this one. If not, I hope to be in attendance once again.

    Can't wait to work the games that weekend. Might be the only buzz in the ballpark besides Opening Day. Should be awesome!

    Why was he not already in the Reds hall? Did MLB ban it and has now lifted the ban for the Reds, but not the MLB hall?

    They already show-ponied him at the All Star Game, might as well let him sell tickets for the Reds Hall too.

    Not sure of all the legalities, but they said they recently amended the by-laws that allowed it, and they had to bet the Commissioner's permission, which he recently granted.

    So the Reds went to the league and said; We have no all star game this year, we have no players that anyone will recognize so can you throw us a bone and let us have one big weekend featuring the hit king?

    ...and a statue is planned sometime. Pete says he would prefer to remembered with a head first slide and not him "standing at the two dollar window at Turfway Park!"
