   Earlier today, the MLB announced the 2010 Hall of Fame class, it consisted of only one player, Andre Dawson. In his 20 year career, Dawson played Outfield with the Expos, Cubs, Red Sox, and Marlins. This 8 time all-star and gold glover definitely deserved a spot in Cooperstown.


   When I heard the news, I was shocked. First of all, I thought there would be multiple Hall-Of-Fame inductees, not just one. Even if I did think there would be one, I was pretty sure that Roberto Alomar would definitely get the top spot. Sadly people like Alomar, Larkin, and Morris all came short.


     Bert Blyleven was someone that was just 5 votes away from being the second inductee this year. He was an amazing pitcher with the Twins and has gathered 287 carrer wins.
