To get my baseball fix in while I am waiting for a YES to finally show up. I went to a couple of baseball events over the last few days and here is my take from each.

Kansas Baseball Hall of Hall Induction (1/26/13)

This past Saturday, six members were inducted to the Kansas Baseball Hall of Fame, Walter "Barney" Barnett, Jim Deckinger, Paul Roberts, John Weitzal, Lee Stevens and Chris Wimmer. Pat Meares was also to be inducted, but he had other arrangements. The event started with a reception at the Kansas Baseball Hall of Fame. This event was pretty dull as most of the inductees were unapproachable since they were spending time with family members.

After the reception, everyone went to the Hillside Christian Church for the ceremony and a buffet catered by Jet Bar-B-Q. I have to at least talk about the spread. The barbecue was OK, the only item I would have had twice was the turkey. It was moist and had good smoke flavor which is a hard combo to pull off with tukey. The pulled pork was OK (I can make better), the brisket was tough and dry and the first bite I took from a sausages had a big chunk of bone in it. I've eaten worse, I have eaten better. Now on to the inductions.
