Barry Larkin lost it before he even started. Vicki Santo never wavered as she honored her late husband, Ron. Baseball's highest honor always seems to leave a special impression on those directly involved. Larkin, the former star shortstop for the Cincinnati Reds, and Ron Santo, a standout third baseman for the Chicago Cubs and later a beloved broadcaster for the team, were inducted Sunday into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum at Cooperstown, N.Y. Larkin, who played his entire 19-year career with the Reds, retired after the 2004 season with a .295 average, 2,340 hits, 1,329 runs scored and 379 stolen bases.

Barry Larkin and Ron Santo, who became synonymous with the teams that originally drafted them, will be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame on Sunday in Cooperstown, N.Y. Larkin played his entire 19-year career with the Cincinnati Reds, and Santo, who died in 2010, played 14 of his 15 big league seasons with the Chicago Cubs. In his final season, 1974, Santo played across town for the Chicago White Sox. Larkin nearly ended up in another uniform, too - the Dodgers'. In 1999, the Dodgers and Reds were so close to a deal that would have brought Larkin to Los Angeles that he was actually given a uniform.

For a week or so, I have been taffy-pulled by people telling me how appropriate it is that Reggie Jackson have the baseball Hall of Fame spotlight all to himself and by people scolding me about all the other oughta-be Hall of Famers who got robbed.

Stuart Appleby finished with three straight birdies and tied Shigeki Maruyama for the lead Saturday in the Sony Open at Honolulu, setting up a long final day in which just about everyone is still in the game. Because the opening round was washed out at Waialae, Sunday will feature a 36-hole final. Maruyama holed out from the bunker to the right of the par-three seventh late in his round and shot another five-under-par 65. Appleby had a strong finish for the second day in a row and shot 66. They were at 10-under 130. Mark Wilson (67)

Baseball has always been Ron Santo's life. Now, it is his therapy, too. Two months after his right leg was amputated below the knee because of diabetes, the former Chicago Cubs third baseman is starting over. He soon will have a state-of-the-art prosthesis and will go about trying to live as normal a life as possible, starting first with learning to walk. The nine-time all star plans to resume his broadcasting career with the Cubs, get back on the golf course and ride his horse again.

It took 21 years, but the 1969 Chicago Cubs finally have something to brag about. Ken Rudolph hit a two-run double in the bottom of the seventh and final inning to give the Cubs a 3-2 victory over the 1969 Baltimore Orioles in Sunday's fifth annual Dream Game, billed as "the World Series that never was but should have been." The Cubs, with an eight-game lead in the National League East standings on Aug. 28, 1969, finished eight games behind the pennant-winning New York Mets that year.
