NYS Hall of Fame Inductee Keith Hernandez Joins 104.5 The Team
Keith Hernandez is a big part of what makes the Mets' SNY broadcasts great. His knowledge of the game, a freedom to be himself, which often times leads to hilarity and an approach that isn't shy of critiquing even the Mets makes it the best listen/watch in baseball.
On Sunday, in Troy, Hernandez will be inducted into the New York State Baseball Hall of Fame along with his broadcast partner, Mets play-by-play man Gary Cohen. Hernandez left a historic mark on the game of baseball upon his retirement in 1990. He is the only first baseman to win eleven consecutive Gold Gloves. Eleven straight! Ridiculous. He is also a 2-time World Series champion and 5-time All-Star. In 1979, Hernandez won the National League MVP with the Cardinals and in 1982, won a title in St. Louis. He was the glue, in a lot of ways, for the two teams that won the World Series, including the 1986 Mets.
Friday morning, Hernandez joined Rodger and Chris on Big Board Sports to talk about his induction, his cat and Twitter sensation, Hadji, his book I'm Keith Hernandez and the Mets offseason plans:
