It’s always interesting to see what items the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame receives from their inductees to display.
Here’s a quick look at a few of the artifacts related to this year’s induction class that you can view at the St. Marys, Ont.-based shrine this summer:
*Among the interesting things I learned about Rob Ducey on induction weekend was that he was the starting centre-fielder for the Texas Rangers in Nolan Ryan’s last major league game (September 22, 1993) and he started in left field for the Angels when Royals legend George Brett recorded his 3,000th career hit at Anaheim Stadium on September 30, 1992 .
*Last week, I wrote an article about the strength and courage of Shirley Creek, 2013 Canadian ball hall inductee Tom Cheek’s wife. Her son, Jeff, also gave a very poignant speech about his father at the induction ceremony.
