|Thursday, October 29th, 2026: Jones Joins HOF Immortals|
All-time he played in 2685 games, batted .321 with 542 home runs, 3315 base hits, 1970 RBIs and 2066 runs scored -- stats great enough to be acclaimed a baseball immortal.
Garrett Jones was officially inducted into the lbsq Hall of Fame today.
At his Hall of Fame installation, the superstar first baseman told the audience the secret of his success: "I was born to be a ballplayer...I also practiced a lot. Sunup to sundown in the summertime my brothers and I would be on the ballfield. We did it every minute we could. Boy, I loved to play baseball. Still do, and still would, if I could. I always got a special kick on opening day, no matter how many you went through. I looked forward to it like a birthday party when you're a kid. You think something wonderful is going to happen."
One of his manager's summed up his career very well: "You saw him standing out there on the diamond and you knew you had a pretty darn good chance to win the baseball game."
Jones retired from baseball, when he was 39.
|Thursday, October 29th, 2026: Matt Garza Enters Hall Of Fame |
The Baseball Writers Association have put the crowning touch on Matt Garza's outstanding baseball career. They put the great mound superstar in the lbsq Hall of Fame today.
He modestly gave credit to "better-than-average pitching skills and lots of three-run homers" for making it possible for him to move up into the legendary class of baseball players -- but the sportswriters, his teammates and peers knew differently.
In reality Garza was a craftsman, an artist. He was a perfectionist. He painted a ballgame stroke by stroke and when he got through pitching a game, it was a masterpiece.
By the time he retired at age 42, Garza fashioned an impressive won-loss record of 250-178, had an ERA of 4.71, struck out 3327 batters and held opposing teams to a .264 batting average. Garza made 653 mound appearances and worked 3817.2 total innings in his career.
