Trip to Cooperstown
In July I was invited to attend the Baseball Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony as well as the Chicago Cub's HOF party for Lee Smith.

The party was Saturday night and it was an amazing event. Being able to meet such baseball greats as Andre Dawson, Fergie Jenkins, Ryne Sandberg, Jim Leyritz, and of course Lee Smith was unbelievable. I also got the opportunity to have a nice conversation with Cub's owner Tom Ricketts.
Each of the above mentioned gave a small speech about Lee Smith and got to say their congratulations. Billy Williams and M
