Cashen, Johnson headed for Mets HOF
Former Orioles executive Frank Cashen and former Orioles manager Davey Johnson will join Dwight Gooden and Darryl Strawberry in the this year's class of inductees for the New York Mets Hall of Fame. The induction ceremony will take place on Aug. 1 at Citi Field.
Old-time O's fans remember Cashen fondly as one of the architects of the great Orioles teams of the late 1960s, and lots of current fans wax nostalgic for Johnson's brief tenure in Baltimore (1996-97), which featured the Orioles' only two playoff appearances since 1983.
Frank's son, Brian, forwarded me a copy of today's announcement, but you can take a look at it on the Mets' Web site right here.
