USC Sunday Buzz: Randy Johnson Inducted Into Hall Of Fame

RANDY.JOHNSONFormer USC pitcher Randy Johnson was officially inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame today. From a USC perspective, it is interesting to note that he has remained involve with the baseball program, attending last year’s ceremony for the statue of legendary manager Rod Dedeaux. And of course, he was a member of the Daily Trojan staff while a USC student. The below photo is of the Daily Trojan team that faced UCLA in the 1982 Blood Bowl.

Junior Seau’s Family Not Allowed To Speak At Hall Of Fame

The New York Times reports when former USC linebacker Junior Seau is inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame next month, Seau’s family will not be allowed to speak on his behalf. This raises questions about whether the Hall of Fame (and NFL, it’s largest donor) do not want any discussion of Seau’s suicide,  findings he suffered from chronic traumatic encephalopathy or his family’s lawsuit against the NFL.

David Baker is the father of former USC All-American offensive tackle Sam Baker.
