Now and always, Cooperstown celebrates baseball at its best

On an induction weekend when the first unanimous star and one of the most unlikely selections officially entered its doors, the Hall of Fame provided a needed reminder of all that is right with the game.

Harold Baines, Roy Halladay, Edgar Martínez, Mike Mussina, Mariano Rivera and Lee Smith were inducted with 53 returning Hall of Famers in Cooperstown on Sunday, bringing the total number of Hall of Famers in town to a record 58 – the most at any location in history.

With the White Sox extending safety netting to the foul poles & the O's reportedly to take similar action for 2020, a former star for both said he's all for it MLB-wide. "It's a long time coming as guys are bigger, stronger and the ball is coming off their bats quicker and you have babies in the front row," new Hall of Famer Harold Baines told ESPN in Cooperstown. "They (fans) should be protected — in Japan, it's already like that." Washington also lengthened its netting & 4 other teams say they plan to do so. But Cleveland, where a foul past 1st base on Sun. struck a toddler — who was sent to the hospital — and Tampa Bay, where a woman was injured on a foul to LF Fri. & a man was OK after a thrown bat near 3rd base hit him on Sat., have not announced any new netting plans.

"I'm not an emotional man, except when it comes to family," Harold Baines said, right before his voice cracked. He doesn't say much, but he means what he says.

It's media session time for the 2019 Hall of Fame class in Cooperstown.

Mike Mussina said in our Cooperstown interview Fri. that when he got word in January of his election to the Hall of Fame, his initial thought was "they're giving me a courtesy call to say, ‘hey, listen, you missed by five votes'...they're just being nice to me because I was close." He said he "wasn't sitting at home with people videoing it, with the phone on the coffee table waiting for it to ring, it was nothing at all like that - I was completely surprised." Mussina was coaching a high school basketball practice when the call came and his celebration dinner with his son was "going to McDonald's and grabbing some burgers and nuggets and drinks (from the drive-through)."

New HoF inductee Harold Baines said of himself as a hitter, in our Fri. Cooperstown interview, "I could hit to all fields. You really couldn't position me correctly, because I took advantage of what you left me, and I studied, so I'd pretty much know what side of the plate you were trying to get me out on." He said he takes greatest pride in his longevity and consistency, adding, "My last 12 years I was pretty much on one-year contracts, so I couldn't afford to fail."
