If I have to start doing offseason news and notes posts already, I’m going to start with something good, dangit.

Last night, legendary Guardians broadcaster Tom Hamilton received the honor of being inducted into the Greater Cleveland Sports Hall of Fame. As a bonus Cool Thing — Tom’s son, Bradley Hamilton, tweeted out a video that helped put together for Hammy’s inducting. Try not to get chills.

WKYC has the story on Hamilton’s honoring last night, including some background on his life.

“It started as a little guy living on a dairy farm in Wisconsin,” he said. “I’d be listening to Milwaukee Braves games on a little transistor radio. To think about going to places like New York and Cleveland and Chicago and Boston that almost seemed like the Wizard of Oz.”
