Frank Thomas, aka "The Big Hurt," was overcome with emotion Sunday afternoon as he stood at the podium in Cooperstown during his enshrinement at the Baseball Hall of Fame. Watch his heartwarming speech here.
Meanwhile "The Professor" Greg Maddux, an unimposing presence who efficiently carved up hitters en route to four Cy Young awards and 355 career wins, told a fart joke during his remarks. Maddux also joked about his amusement when his catchers would get dinged in the face by foul tips. Braves manager Bobby Cox gave an entertaining speech as well.
In case you missed it, The Jacksonville Suns and Birmingham Barons mixed it up not once but twice in the top of the ninth inning Friday night for what lasted nearly 20 minutes and resulted in six ejections.
