Yesterday I was a part of the filming of an upcoming episode of the Emmy Award-winning TV show called "A Piece of the Game." They filmed a segment about Babe Adams and showed some of my memorabilia. I love this show -- the producers, hosts, and staff were all very professional and kind to everyone, even me, who is very camera shy! This will be a great show which will most likely air in August. All in a day's work to help get The Babe in the Hall of Fame!
I am so impressed with the Hall of Fame -- they responded to my inquiry about how to ensure "Babe" Adams gets into the HOF within a day! There is a process, which I am starting today with the help of my cousin Fred and my husband Mark. Letter writing, research, and a little begging perhaps! It seems that the process for players from his era (the "Pre-Integration Era") takes a couple of years, the next vote being in the Fall of 2015. I'm on it!

Today I launched the "Babe Adams" website, thanks to many, many people! It is still a work in progress. But with the "A Piece of the Game" television show taping this Sunday 6/22/14, the completion of the written biography, the finalized versions of Eric's music, and hearing from the Hall of Fame with instructions on how to begin the process of ensuring "The Babe" a spot among the legends in Cooperstown, I wanted to have a bit of a personal touch. Feel free to comment!
