Kenny Ducey on the 2014 Baseball Hall of Fame Class
New York Yankees and Knicks reporter Kenny Ducey joined Jeff Thurn on Friday’s edition of Overtime to share his thoughts on this year’s Major League Baseball Hall of Fame Class.
Ducey (@KennyDucey) covers the Yankees and Knicks as on-air personality for WFUV Sports, an NPR affiliate. He also works with AP/CBS/WFAN radio, the Cauldron, and for “It’s All About the Money.” (A blog covering the Yankees for ESPN’s Sweetspot Blog Network).
Where does this year’s MLB Hall of Fame class ranks among other classes?
“You know it’s interesting because if you look at the inductees that are coming into the Hall and it’s really the steroid era guys. You look at Glavine, and Maddux, these are two of the most dominant pitchers that more contemporary fans can be familiar with. And you know you look at Frank Thomas and I really think you are going to see this one go down as one of the most memorable ones in the next 15 years maybe just in terms of this new generation of baseball fans that guys like myself can identify and a really dominant brand of pitching. And then the managers that go along with that. LaRussa, Torre, and Cox. Those are one of three best managers that are in the game, that happened in the game in last 15 or 20 years. I think that this is a very memorable one. Yep.”
Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux, Frank Thomas, Bobby Cox, Tony LaRussa, and Joe Torre all were selected Sunday to Cooperstown.
