Congratulations to Larry Walker, the most recent lefthanded slugger elected to the Hall of Fame.
17 of the 83 pitchers in the Hall of Fame are lefthanded pitchers,
and 72 of the 179 position players in the Hall of Fame are lefthanded batters.
Clayton Kershaw is in a class by himself. Jon Lester, Cole Hamels, and David Price are other veteran southpaws approaching career milestones.
There are more lefthanders playing baseball than there are in most other sports,
but obstacles and bias still prevent many more lefthanders from playing the game.
Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, Stan Musial,
Reggie Jackson, Tony Gwynn, Barry Bonds, and Ken Griffey Jr. are among the best ever.
Congratulations to the Los Angeles Dodgers, 2020 World Series Champions
Thanks to all the players and coaches and everyone else who made the 2020 season possible.
Your efforts brought some excitement and normalcy to an otherwise depressing summer.
