Sometimes Nice Guys Do Finish First
Tony Gwynn and Cal Ripken, Jr. in the Hall of Fame

Congrats Tony and Cal!

Being the San Diego Padres fan that I am, I just gotta say how glad I am for Tony Gwynn. But Cal Ripken, Jr. has a well deserved pat on the back as well. Both are renown for their sense of fair play, love of the game, and overall loyalty to both their team and their fans (something pretty rare, nowadays). Both players actually refused trades to other teams for bigger paychecks. As Tony Gwynn once said, "I owe the fans here in San Diego".

And to make it all the sweeter, that steroid pumpin', phony baloney, freakishly large, Mark "We Don't Need To Live In The Past" McGwire, fell miserably short of making it.

Like I said, sometimes nice guys do finish first.
