Loved the speech, Big Hurt.

Bawled all the way thru it.

Loved the rapid fire recognition of everybody from Willie Chicken Thompson to Hermie and all the players.

He pulled that off amazingly well after all the water works talking about his dad.

Frank was never a phony to the media, so they hammered him.
MJ made nice to the media, and then was meanspirited behind the scenes, while Frank was always a nice guy behind the scenes.

Proud to be a Sox fan who watched almost every Big Hurt at bat.
Way to go ,Frank!

I was there and was blown away by the whole experience. I went with my dad and the tears started flowing right along with Frank since my dads dad passed less then two years ago. We were lucky enough to have seats in section 3 in front of the lawn.

We also went to the legends roundtable on Monday which was a good chance to hear them all speak. Frank said after his speech the rest of the hall of famers gave him a phone book in case he needed to look up more names. Haha.

Then I got to spend several hours with him that afternoon which was surreal.

Congrats Big Hurt!

Frank will make his triumphant return to the ComcastSportsNet studios tonite to work alongside R.Chuck and Belting Bill....they joked that they would have the Elvis sunglasses ready for the ''star''...complete with attached sideburns.

I'm a tad disappointed that I didn't get a shout out during Frank's HOF speech. Would it have killed him to acknowledge "Chez from Section 137?"
