Four players earned induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame on Tuesday. Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, John Smoltz and Craig Biggio will all be honored in Cooperstown next summer.
Congratulatory messages for the newly-minted Hall of Famers poured out in the thousands on Twitter from fans, former teammates and current athletes who grew up idolizing the inductees. They also came from rappers, politicians and teams in other sports.
