Throwing it around

It’s Hall of Fame voting day. Barry Larking gets 62% of the vote–which we’ve already mentioned. It would definitely be cool to see Barry Larkin get into the Hall of Fame. Whether he deserves it or not, he would be one of the first of our favorite players as a kid to get into The Hall. And he was definitely great for a long time. So that pretty much qualifies.
