2007 College Baseball Hall of Fame Inductees

2007 Induction Ceremony

Chuck "Bobo" Brayton joked about having to play a game during his youth in Birdsview, Wash., a place so small "they had to pipe air in to those people."

Roughly seven decades later, Brayton and 10 others -- including one of his former players and ex-Seattle, Toronto and New York Mets standout John Olerud -- were on college baseball's big stage as they were inducted into the National College Baseball Hall of Fame.

Those aspects were certainly on display for the ceremonies held at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center. Each inductee was presented with a portrait from their playing or coaching days as well as a commemorative belt buckle symbolic of their visit to Texas.
