We know there a drinking games based on when TV analyst Bert Blyleven says “At the Major League level” during Twins’ games. But that quirk might not stop Bert from entering baseball’s hall of fame as a broadcaster. He’s already in as a player, but the Pioneer Pressreports Blyleven has made the first cut to go in next year for his on-air work.

If he's elected, Blyleven would be the first player to also go in as a broadcaster. As he told Charley Walters, "I'd have to write another speech."

That first speech? Solid gold:
