Auburn baseball: Big names lead Wall of Fame induction

Here's my story for today's newspaper about Auburn's Wall of Fame induction at Plainsman Park on Saturday:

AUBURN, Ala. — After arriving Thursday night, Gregg Olson, the anonymous face of Auburn’s inaugural Wall of Fame class, shot the breeze at his hotel with a few Missouri players in town for the weekend’s baseball tournament.

One player beamed about being in attendance with so many baseball greats.

“He goes, ‘Yeah, we’re pretty excited because Bo Jackson, Tim Hudson and Frank Thomas are going into the Hall of Fame this weekend,’” Olson said. “I was like, ‘Cool. All right. Fourth wheel.’”

Olson can still consider himself in an elite class, one of four players honored Saturday at Plainsman Park for putting Auburn baseball on the map.
