The #1 Reason Andre Dawson Should Be (Update: IS!) in the HOF: He’s a Hero

The newest class of MLB Hall of Famers will be announced later today and one of the guys who might potentially make it is Chicago Cubs legend Andre Dawson.

In fact, The Hawk is far more than a legend. He is a hero.

How can you not vote for him after listening to that? (h/t this tweet by @Aisle424)

Update: The Hawk got the call: he’s a Hall of Famer

andre-dawson-hall-of-fameThis just in, from SI.com:

In one of the tightest elections ever, Andre Dawson was the only player elected by the Baseball Writers Association of America to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Dawson received 77.9 percent of the vote, just above the 75 percent needed for enshrinement. Bert Blyleven got 74.2 percent, missing election by just five votes. Roberto Alomar, widely expected to be a shoo-in, finished third with 73.7 percent. Jack Morris and Barry Larkin were the only other players to top 50 percent.

Wow. Just based on the few reports I’d read/heard from the baseball experts, I figured that Robbie Alomar would make it in and had a better chance than Dawson. Amazing how all of sudden Dawson is Hall worthy when he got only 60-some percent of the vote last year.

But, such is voting for the Hall of Fame.

Congratulations Hawk. Now join me in singing the chorus that I guarantee will be stuck in your head for the rest of the day: “He’s a hero! He’s a hero! A celebrated Hero!”
