Barry Larkin Makes Hall Of Fame With 86.4% Vote Rating
There has been quite a bit of controversy swirling around about Barry Larkin and wether he would receive the 75 percent vote rating needed to reach immortality and become a member of the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown this year. After the long, the 12 time all-star recently received the exciting news that he is in with an 86.4 percent vote rating from the Baseball Writers’ Association of America.
Larkin spent his entire 19 year career with the Cincinnati Reds and was the first shortstop to reach the difficult 30-30 club in 1996.
Commenting on the reaching induction of Larkin, Johnny Bench stated, “It certainly is a deserving honor for the Cincinnati native and Reds shortstop. Barry distinguished himself as a tremendous leader and a dominating player.”
Congratulations and kudos to Barry Larkin and the Cincinnati Reds’ organization for this great achievement!
