THE HERALD HUNT MAKES THE BASEBALL HALL OF FAME

Some of you may recall that in the most recent Herald Hunt we had a puzzle that involved an actor reading "Casey at the Bat" and some specially made baseball cards featuring players named in the poem. Andy Wenzel, a.k.a. Andy the Tropichunt.com guy, contacted the Baseball Hall of Fame and offered to donate a set of these cards. Not only did the folks at the Hall accept this offer, but they sent Andy, Tom Shroder and me official certificates:

20120222 - Baseball Hall of Fame Donor Certificate - Dave Barry.tif

So clearly America is doomed. 

Corrections: Andy tells me that Cooperstown contacted him, not the other way around. Also the illustrator, Otis Sweat, also received a certificate. Also America may not be doomed.
