HOF Roundtable: Johnson offers to plunk Biggio, and everybody waves goodbye to Randy's mom
HOF Roundtable: Everyone waves goodbye to Randy's mom
The day after their blue-suited, mullet-wigged induction ceremony, MLB's four newest Hall of Famers got together to say goodbye to Randy Johnson's mother as she headed home from Cooperstown.
OK, so the roundtable on Monday featuring Craig Biggio, Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez and John Smoltz wasn't just to give Mrs. Johnson a collective send-off, but as Johnson bade his mother a public farewell (you can now cross "Hearing Randy Johnson say 'Mom'" off your bucket list), so too did Pedro.
"We all love you," Biggio added.
The roundtable also featured less heartwarming topics, like the 285 times Biggio was hit by a pitch. In fact, it almost became 286 while the four were on stage, because while both Martinez and Smoltz hit Biggio once apiece, Johnson never plunked him.
"Somebody get me a ball right now, let me hit him," Johnson quipped. Fun fact: Biggio never hit Johnson either, going 0-for-16 against him.
But don't worry, there are no hard feelings between the HOFers. As Smoltz said, "It was pretty cool, that quadrant will be forever linked together. In that plaque, we're all the same height, we all have the same hair."
"That's going to be your next wig," Martinez said. "The Jheri curl."
