Johnson struggles to button his enormous Hall of Fame jersey
The National Baseball Hall of Fame formally introduced its four-member class of 2015 on Wednesday and presented each of the inductees with jerseys, which presented 6-foot-10 lefty flamethrower Randy Johnson with a bit of a problem.
It appears that Johnson was fumbling with a Big Unit-sized jersey with enough extra material to stuff David Wells inside. Meanwhile, co-inductee John Smoltz stepped on a chair and kindly helped top Johnson’s head with a Hall of Fame hat like a Christmas tree. Johnson finally got the ensemble together, as you can see at the end of the video.

A very humbled Johnson had this to say:
“I never really liked to stand in front of all of you and talk about what I was doing. I enjoyed doing those things but that’s what I was getting paid to do, that’s what I worked hard to do, and so the Hall of Fame was never something that I surely ever thought about. I just really enjoyed playing the game. I truly did.” #HOF2015
