Minto Foxburr Inducted into Hall Of Fame

Tuesday, January 1st, 2030
"He simply produced -- game after game after game. That's what I loved about him."

Those sentiments were expressed by one of Minto Foxburr's managers at the gifted third baseman's Hall of Fame induction ceremony yesterday. On a cloudy, but comfortable afternoon, he took his rightful place among the best Tolkien Baseball players of all-time.

The newest Hall of Famer assessed his career in these words: "I did my best to contribute to the team -- in the field, at the plate, in the dugout. I didn't care about personal numbers. I just went out there to win."

Foxburr played in 2444 games with a .295 career batting average and 2541 hits. He also scored 1508 runs and drove in 1133 runs with 290 home runs.

Foxburr retired from baseball, when he was 44.
