Despite one's feelings on the Hall of Fame and who will or will not get in and all that hullabaloo, it is still quite fun to see some of the all-time greats get honored with one of the highest distinctions the game can offer. This weekend was quite exciting as four very good players were enshrined. Let's take a look at their stats for old time's sake.
