#4: 2016 MLB Hall of Fame
Cooperstown NY is a small town 200 miles north of New York City. The names that have been inducted into the Hall of Fame were brighter than the lights of Manhattan. In baseball there are players and then legends. Legends are the select few who changed the game with their God given abilities, yet with honor and integrity, played the game with respect. Respect for those who came before them and those who will come long after. Those inducted into Cooperstown will forever be the example that young players strive to be. Legends leave a mark, their mark, that defines them. Yet simple enough that the word baseball automatically makes you think of them. From Babe Ruth to Ken Griffey Jr. Each person that is inducted will forever be linked to baseball. An honor that cannot be taken lightly yet and honor that needs to be enjoyed.
