THE PROFESSOR AND THE MISANTHROPE:

STRIKE TWO -- HALL OF FAME FINALE DEPT. (Jayson Stark, 1/23/09, ESPN)

We know Greg Maddux is heading for the Hall of Fame. And I'm guessing Jeff Kent is also bound for Cooperstown one of these years. So how about this:

Not only did they end their careers in the same game last October, but the end of Maddux's career came when (guess what?) Kent pinch-hit for Maddux.

If any of you loyal readers can give me another set of Hall of Famers whose career ended on the same day, with one pinch-hitting for the other, let me know -- at uselessinfodept@yahoo.com.
