The Padres Hall of Fame has been neglected for far too long. Sportswriter Tom Krasovic announced that he has joined the Hall's selection committee and that today they inducted Trevor Hoffman. It's about time.

@sdutCanepa we put Hoffman in today. I'll get back to you on candidates.— Tom Krasovic (@UTkrasovic) August 1, 2014
I hope they don't drag out the process of inducting the other deserving members. I'm blown away that team broadcaster Ted Leitner who has been with the team since 1980 still isn't in the Hall. Do right by him. If there was ever any doubt, Leitner proved that he is a cornerstone of the team during the services for his partner Jerry Coleman and his friend Tony Gwynn.
Would love to see @TedLeitner honored in the @Padres Hall of Fame. Last night was just another reminder of how much he deserves it.— Gaslamp Ball (@gaslampball) June 27, 2014
And then there's the others...
@gaslampball @TedLeitner The Chicken, Benny, Tempy, Bob Chandler & hell, Trevor since he's not in for some reason— RJ's Fro (@RJsFro) June 27, 2014
I'm all on board with Bob Chandler and the San Diego Chicken. And as for the Benito and Templeton, the more the merrier.
