Jaime Garcia to be inducted in Latin American International Hall of Fame

by on January 24, 2012 · 0 comments

It’s true. Jaime Garcia will be feted, along with Jorge Posada, this Saturday evening in Laredo, TX.

From KGNS 8 in Laredo:

To be fair, Garcia’s inclusion is likely helped along by having played his high school baseball at Sharyland about 140 miles away from Laredo.

Jaime is in good company with Posada, who arguably has a bit better resume than Garcia. To wit, the video above promote Garcia’s Hall of Fame induction by noting he “has won 13 games each of his two season in the big leagues”. It’s not that Jaime doesn’t deserve to be recognized, but maybe let him build up a bit more of a resume? That said, the Latin American International Hall of Fame also counts Linda Ruth Tosetti as an inductee, presumably just for being Babe Ruth‘s granddaughter.

This has certainly been a whirlwind off-season for the World Champion Cardinals, and now another one of them can show up in Jupiter and sign autographs with “Hall of Fame” behind his name. Congratulations, Jaime Garcia.

Writing about the Cardinals and other loosely associated topics since 2008, I've grown tired of the April run-out only to disappoint Cardinal fans everywhere by mid-May. I do not believe in surrendering free outs.
