Cal Ripken & Tony Gwynn Enter Cooperstown

If I heard it correct, hundreds of buses have made their way up from Baltimore to Cooperstown to be in the picturesque New York State lakeside community when Cal Ripken enters the Baseball Hall of Fame on July 29, 2007.

Knowing the parties involves, I guess this should not be startling. Both Cal Ripken and baseball fans in Baltimore have both long been something special. And with the O's not much to write home about these days (and for years now), the Hall of Fame honor is an opportunity to look back at the glory days for both.

By theway, Tony Gwynn is not chopped liver either. But because the trek from San Diego is a cross-county one, the voices from Maryland are likely to dominate.

Here is how the Baltimore Sun looked at the day of the big induction ceremony.
