I grew up going to countless Padres games. I rarely left early because I wanted to see Trevor Hoffman pitch. I wanted to hear the stadium and the fans erupt to Hells Bells. He deserves to get the call to the HOF today #51toHOF

#51InHOF: Hoffman goes in on the 20th anniversary of the 1998 #Padres, who reached the World Series largely because Hoffman converted a record 53 of 54 saves in the regular season -- one of his nine seasons with 40 or more saves. #HoffyInHall
