one year passes...

Wow--my post just above is where I decided to move to St. Mary's...No HOF class this year, and the induction of Olerud/Morneau/Ward/Doucet still on hold.

Now that I'm on the inside, out there pulling weeds, I'm going to lobby hard for Munenori.

St. Marys...St. Marys...I even have a T-shirt that says "St. Marys: Apostrophe-Free Since 1864."

They're still doing catch up from COVID, but this year's Canadian HOF inductees:

Posting these days for me is often like the final scene of Seinfeld--I think I've told this story before, but I'm never quite sure. Anyway, I got a card autographed by Barfield once (right in the Skydome, I think), and I mentioned to him that I was there the night he became the first Blue Jay to hit 40 HR (1986). He remembered not just the pitcher (of course), but the pitch, the count, where he hit it, everything. It was probably 10 or 15 years later.

This is interesting from his little bio:

In 1985, the right-handed hitting slugger helped lead the Blue Jays to their first American League East title when he had 27 home runs, 22 stolen bases and 22 outfield assists. This made him just the second player (Willie Mays was the first in 1955) in big league history to have at least 20 home runs, 20 stolen bases and 20 outfield assists in the same campaign.

Wonder if that's still true.
