Former Rangers catching great and current executive Jim Sundberg is one of the newest members of the Texas Sports Hall of Fame. Here's a little of what Sundberg had to say about things Monday.
"It's really special. I played, I didn't think I was a person that had a lot of ability, but I thought I played hard and left my heart on the field, and so to be recognized after 16 years of Major League Baseball is pretty special. I am humbled by it and it's quite an honor to be with this class and to be recognized by the Texas Sports Hall of Fame."
On what's going in the Hall? "They have a hat. They have some uniforms. I've got to get them a few more things. I've got to get them some spikes and a glove and a couple of other items."
On possibility of Michael Young trade? "It's turning out that way now. I think he's upset. You know the process has drug out. It's been in the paper a lot. His feelings are hurt. I think if ultimately if that's what Michael really wants, Jon Daniels will probably make that happen. I would hope that he would not. I would hope that he would be with us and be the kind of athlete, be the kind of professional athlete that would I think not let what had happened affect him and he would go out and play hard."
Can you see where Young is coming from? "I think anybody who's played doesn't like to see a team you've given your heart and played a long time for talk about trades. I think the most hurtful trade that I ever went through was the first trade. You've kind of given your heart and beared your soul to a group, so I can understand him being upset."
