COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. – Joe Mauer’s thoughts are never far from home.
But when the Minnesota Twins All-Star appears on the next episode of Homecoming with Rick Reilly on Saturday, he’ll receive a double dose of home – thanks to Baseball Hall of Fame President Jeff Idelson.
COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. – Baseball’s greatest weekend will celebrate the careers of three new Hall of Fame inductees while introducing a new lineup of family-friendly activities, as Hall of Fame Weekend 2010 will take place July 23-26 in Cooperstown, N.Y.
The commissioner didn’t say anything about brains. I’ll tell you, I showed up a lot, which is one of the reasons I’m here, and I’m very grateful for it. Before I speak, I would like to introduce my wife Mary. Will you please stand up. My oldest son Robbie and his wife Debbie. My next boy Danny; then Richard, who’s 19 years old; and the one we still have at home, Jimmie. I’m like Freddie, I have so many people that took the time to come all this way to be in Cooperstown, not only to see the Hall of Fame, but here because I am being inducted today, and I thank them so very much.
