3/9/12-Something Historical–Hall of Famers-August 5, 2001

One awesome part of working for the Dodgers is being able to attend the Baseball Hall of Fame Ceremony in Cooperstown, New York whenever a Dodger or someone close to the organization is inducted. Dave Winfield and Kirby Puckett were inducted at this ceremony in 2001 which included Los Angeles Times writer Ross Newhan who received the J.G. Taylor Spink Award.  This photo of Lou Brock, Bob Gibson and Sandy Koufax just stood out as a nice, light moment among three great competitors. I have been fortunate enough to make it to Cooperstown for induction ceremonies and two Hall of Fame games at Doubleday Field between the Dodgers/Cleveland Indians rained out in 1993 and Dodgers/San Diego Padres in 1997.  © Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers

I never been to Cooperstown. I know that when I go, I’ll be like a little kid in a candy store. Maybe in 2014, when Greg Maddux gets inducted into the Hall of Fame.
Beautiful picture. Maybe someday I will get to meet Mr. Koufax!
