COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) - Former slugger Andre Dawson heads up the newest class inducted into the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown on Sunday. The man nicknamed "Hawk" was an eight-time All-Star and just one of three major league players to hit 400 homers and steal more than 300 bases. Willie Mays and Barry Bonds are the others.
Dawson is joined by former manager Whitey Herzog, umpire Doug Harvey, broadcaster Jon Miller and sports writer Bill Madden.
The 56-year-old Dawson is the 203rd player elected to the Hall of Fame, making it on the ninth try.
The 78-year-old Herzog is just the 19th major league manager to be inducted.
