Cardenal, Hughes, O’Neil inducted into Cubs Hall of Fame

Former Cubs outfielder José Cardenal and broadcaster Pat Hughes were joined by a throng of former Cubs greats Saturday that included Billy Williams, Ryne Sandberg and Andre Dawson for a pregame induction ceremony for the Cubs Hall of Fame…

Cardenal and Hughes joined a third member of the class, pioneering Negro Leagues player and manager Buck O’Neil, who was a scout and coach for the Cubs in the earliest days of MLB integration — and who was honored posthumously this summer with a long-overdue induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

Hughes, who’s in his 22nd year in the Cubs booth (40th as an MLB broadcaster overall)  is the third Cubs broadcaster in the team’s Hall of Fame, alongside Jack Brickhouse and Harry Caray.

“To be bracketed with Harry Caray and Jack Brickhouse in the long and legendary history of the Cubs, I must have been doing something right,” Hughes said. “It’s very special.

“It’s an unbelievable honor, one that I will cherish for the rest of my life.”
