Now, this is not a homer post, although it is certainly about my favorite baseball player of all time. For those of you that did not catch Ryne Sandberg's Hall of Fame speech, you can read it here.

Considering that Ryno basically was a mute during his career, this speech was truly remarkable. The Hall of Fame is usually a time when a guy gets up there and talks about his career, thanks a bunch of people, and calls it good. And Ryno does do that. But he does it in the context of respect for the game. And does so brilliantly.

What makes it such a fantastic speech is the fact that it can really hit home in any arena of life. It's not just about baseball; it is about how a man should act in life. It has been said many, many times that what makes baseball so great is because the lessons you learn from the game translate to life so well. That is why, no matter what anyone says, baseball will ALWAYS be our National Pastime. That is, as long as people like Ryno come along down the road.

But please, take a minute to read it. It is great stuff.
