2012 Hall Of Famer Visits Cooperstown
Cooperstown, NY (WIBX) – He played his last professional game in 2004, but fans are still enthralled by Barry Louis Larkin, who stopped by the National Baseball Hall of Fame over the weekend.
The former Cincinnati Reds’ shortstop and current ESPN analyst visited Cooperstown in advance of his induction into the Hall of Fame, scheduled to take place on July 22, 2012.
During his pro career Larkin hit 198 home runs, had 379 stolen bases, and presided over a .295 batting average.
Larkin will share this year’s honors with former third baseman Ron Santos, the nine time All-Star who passed away in 2010 and is being inducted posthumously by the Hall’s Golden Era Committee.
