Induction 2017

INDUCTION IS HERE! But There’s Much More

INDUCTION IS HERE!

But There’s Much More

In this week’s “Induction 2017” Special Edition, get an inside look at former MLB Commissioner Bud Selig, who will be inducted, and Rachel Robinson, widow of the legendary player who broke the MLB color line, who will receive the Buck O’Neil Award, two highlights of the weekend’s activities. But there’s much more: Court papers give an in-depth look at why a retired Otsego County undersheriff took 73 firearms home that should have been destroyed, and why he escaped without jail time. And reporter Libby Cudmore and photographer Ian Austin tour Damaschke Field, learning why Outlaws owner Gary Laing believes the grandstand must. This and much more in Hometown Oneonta and The Freeman’s Journal, on newsstands this afternoon.

HoF Inductee Bagwell Visits

Where His Plaque Will Hang

Incoming Baseball Hall of Famer Jeff Bagwell  today is going through his pre-Induction walk-through of 25 Main St., Cooperstown, with wife Rachel.  HoF VP Eric Strohl conducts the tour.  He is considered one of the best trades every made: The relief pitcher who joined the Red Sox pitched just 22 games, while Bagwell went on to hit 449 home runs for the Houston Astros, helping his team to the World Series.  He will be inducted Sunday, July 30.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
