Luis Tiant should be in Cooperstown, Hall of Famer says in speech: ‘Pretty soon, you’re gonna see him’
Before one Boston Red Sox legend was officially inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in David Ortiz, another legend got some support for induction. Former Red Sox pitcher Luis Tiant got a shoutout during the induction speech of Minnesota Twins legend Tony Oliva, who was inducted Sunday at the age of 84. Oliva took some time to highlight some of his former teammates during his speech. The former outfielder made a point to highlight that Tiant, who like Oliva hails from Cuba, also belongs in Cooperstown.
