A tip of the cap to you, Barry Larkin

Larkin, Santo to be inducted into the Hall’s Class of 2012
Barry Larkin traded his football helmet for a batting helmet, then tipped his cap to Major League Baseball after the 2004 season. “It was a great run. I was really happy how I was able to stay there (in Cincinnati),” Larkin said. “I thought about being good; I thought about being an All-Star, thought about all that kind of stuff, but I never thought about the Hall of Fame.”
In 15 major league seasons, Ron Santo compiled a .277 batting average, had 2,254 hits, 1,331 RBIs and 365 doubles in 2,243 games. He also was a tireless fundraiser for juvenile diabetes, raising more than $50 million. Now, the deceased and beloved Chicago Cub is a Hall of Famer.
