Butch Henry: To become a part of baseball's lasting history here in the town, it's a great honor and I am excited to be a part of it this year. Everybody knows how much I love this town and love the people, I love to live here, and when I can be a part of baseball history in this town as part of the hall of fame, it's a special day.
Gilbert De La Rosa: Just super, it's a prestige thing, you are proud to put in the years, so many years, and all of a sudden, you get rewarded by being in the Hall of Fame.
Joey Pennies: Just to know that a bunch of really qualified guys remembered me and recognize me, I can't tell you how good that makes me feel.
Frank Del Toro: I knew I would be nominated and I was hoping I would get in with this group of players, baseball has been my livelihood, and I am glad I got in. I would like to thank the Hall of Fame for that.
Shawn Lehigh: What's nice about it is that all five of us know each other pretty well, we were all part when those guys were coaching, me and Gilbert worked a lot of ballgames, so it's a great honor to be inducted with these five guys.
The Induction and Awards banquet will take place October 26 at the Lancers Club, 3135 Trawood Dr.
