How Athletes Ensure Immortality

Source: The Atlantic

It’s getting tougher and tougher to become immortal. The National Baseball Hall of Fame last weekend announced stricter voting rules for recently retired players, reducing the maximum time they can stay on the ballot from 15 to 10 years. Not every ballplayer can get a plaque in Cooperstown, of course. As Syndrome, the villain in the Disney-Pixar film The Incredibles puts it, “When everyone’s super, no one will be.” This new rule would have booted such la ...

Wisch: 5 Thoughts From A Weekend In Cooperstown

Source: CBS Chicago

By Dave Wischnowsky – (CBS) The Chicago White Sox aren’t known for drawing a crowd. In fact, they’re often known for not drawing one. But after this past weekend in Cooperstown, N.Y., perhaps that should change. Because fans of the South Siders showed up in droves Sunday to cheer on favorite son Frank Thomas as he was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, and the much-maligned fan base deserves big kudos for their Big Hurt turnout.

You could see it Sunday in Greg Maddux being “as nervous as I’ve ever seen him”—Glavine’s scouting report—and in Tom Seaver’s advice on the bus as the Hall of Famers rolled past green pastures toward the Induction ceremony. “All right, boys, don’t forget your wife’s n ...

Levine: Maddux Stays In Character In Hall Of Fame Speech

Source: CBS Chicago

By Bruce Levine- COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (CBS) – Greg Maddux always moved to the beat of his own drum during his fabulous 22 year career. I met him in spring training of 1987 and he has not changed. He was always a person of commitment and honesty. Maddux always had fun on and off the field. His humor was something in between slapstick and Monty Python. His attack mode on the mound was fearless: a stone cold killer with a baseball in his hand. Nobody was m ...
