The one guy that got me interested in major league baseball has passed away today.

I remember as a child trading 4 baseball cards in getting his baseball card. I really like watching him making home runs. Even more when I met him in person at a restaurant/bar in 2006 or 2007. He was on a promotion tour with a local distillery. He went around shaking hands with everyone one in the place. I was stunned then as I was a child. His hands were huge and he was taller than I was. And I am a dude that is 6' 7" tall.  I will miss him along with others that I admired as a child. Rest in peace Hondo 😔

 

Update: I saw his 5 minute tribute on the World Series last night in the ninth inning. I would have expected more, but that's me.
