The MLB.com Fantasy 411 Hall of Fame Inductees!

To our listeners:

Cory, Vinny and I would like to thank you for some great memories these past few years. In honor of our 500th show we would like to give back by creating a Hall of Fame for the MLB.com Fantasy 411. We have decided to make it mostly about the listeners while finding some room for former hosts, current guests and our philosophies. We also threw some humor in there as well. Below you will find our inductees who will officially be enshrined Thursday September 14th at 11am during a special ninety minute show. Thanks again for being the best fans on earth and below water.

Sweet, Thank you for the honor. Thanks to the two studds on our current Fantasy 411 roster, F411HOF (Future Fantasy 411 Hall of Famers) Cory “Stats” Schwartz and Mike “The Animal” Siano, wouldn’t be the same hall if I didn’t know I’d share it with you guys some day.

Oh and I was also the first listener to be live in studio… Zack – Philly.

Congrats to all inductees!
All worthy recipients. Specially #18

If were giving out awards, how can we forget to give one to the only MLB player who has his own award… who is it you ask? well, he likes to drive his Ferrari in excess of 120 MPH, Yep you got it

The Esteban Loaiza Award!

Old schoolers know what I’m talking about!

GP

How about a CrackBerry award?
Where would we be without it?

Where were you.. what work or errands for the wife were you supposed to be doing, when secretly you were setting your lineup or making a trade on the bb/cb?

All hail the 8700…:)
