*Jack Honored by SGCBL Hall of Fame
Monday, July 3rd, 2028
The Tolkien Baseball Hall of Fame honors those players who are the best at their position, those special individuals whose skills make them unforgettable in the eyes of baseball fans everywhere. Another such player was recognized today, as catcher Splinter *Jack was enshrined at his induction ceremony.
There was no mistaking the look of pride on Splinter *Jack's face as he saw his statue for the first time and the plaque recounting the many accomplishments over his 1394-game career. *Jack played until he was 38 and had a lifetime .315 batting average with 290 home runs. Baseball's newest Hall of Famer batted in 960 runs and scored 1066 times.
Fans of all ages watched in appreciation as *Jack blinked back tears. "I really don't know what to say during such an enormous moment," he managed to finally say, "because words cannot describe all the feelings and thoughts running through my head. The love and appreciation from all my fellow players and all the fans out there has been overwhelming, but I would not be here today without the love and support of my family. My greatest thanks goes to them."Posted at October 28, 2013 02:05 PM | more from League News, more from Moria
