Watch Journey, Steve Perry’s Heartfelt Rock Hall of Fame Speeches

By Rolling Stone

Rolling Stone

The most anticipated moment of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony came when former Journey vocalist Steve Perry appeared alongside his ex-bandmates for the first time since a 2005 Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony. 

Although he didn’t sing with them (and hasn’t since a one-off event in 1991), Perry did stand with them at the podium to deliver an induction speech. If this moment didn’t lead to an actual reunion performance, it’s hard to imagine that anything will. But even without Perry, Journey is still able to pack arenas all over the world, largely due to their current singer, Arnel Pineda. Read the band’s speech below, including Steve Perry ‘s warm words for replacement vocalist Pineda.

Neal Schon:  Everyone did such a good job. Incredible work. So proud of you. This is all about you, fans…I love all you guys. Steve Perry, you are one in a million! [Applause] Santana, there would be no Journey without You; if it wasn’t for you, there would be No Journey. [Former Journey manager] Herbie Herbert, thank you from the bottom of my heart, for finding me after Gregg was picking me up in high school when I was 15. Soon after that, I was in the Santana group.

Wow, what a terrific, long ride it’s been. It’s been a beautiful one. I want to thank my beautiful wife, Michaele. Since she’s come to me, it’s been a white light and I just feel great. Never left my side one day! Delighted. It’s been seven years. She’s been on tour with me the whole time. I love you. I love my children, Miles! He’s here. An aspiring young guitar player. I love Miles. Lizzie, Sarah, Sophie, and Aja. Thank you so much! Rock n Roll Hall of Fame ! Thank you, you guys! 

Aynsley Dunbar: Good evening. Well, I hope I can be sort of funny as Chris Wyatt, but I don’t think so. This is going to be straightforward. This is an awesome honor to be here with my own bandmates, Journey. I would like to thank my family, my friends, my managers, my ex-wives … And of course, a big thank you to all our fans for your support throughout the years. A very humble thank you.

Gregg Rolie: What a great night this is for waiting. This is my second trip here. And what a trip this has been. First Santana, Journey, Ringo Starr and back here with Journey. I want to thank Herbie Herbert, my manager and longtime friend through Journey. And Neal Schon, for calling me while I was up in Seattle and saving me from the restaurant business. Don’t ever do it. Just start Journey. And you know, it’s been an incredible trip for my life. I want to thank the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for inducting this band kindly. But also, for me, this is really about the fans. All of you. Without music fans, this place is empty. There’s nobody here! This is really, for me, this is really about all you guys, especially Journey fans for me. This is your award, but it will be proudly displayed in my home in Austin, Texas.

Steve Smith:  Rock and roll means many things to many people, as the diversity of the Class of 2017 clearly Illustrates. I started out in 1963, at nine years old, as a jazz drummer. I thank my parents Bruce and Lorraine Smith for finding me an excellent private drum instructor and supporting my musical passion. Back then, my favorite bands were the Count Basie Big Band and the Buddy Rich Big Band. It wasn’t until 1969 that I discovered rock and roll, when my friend Pudge Greenhalgh, from Cape Cod, showed me his brother Dave’s record collection.

He played me Jimi Hendrix, Cream and Led Zeppelin. What I heard was Mitch Mitchell, Ginger Baker and John Bonham; at that moment I could relate to rock drumming and rock music.

Disc jockey Alan Freed — a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee — once said, “Rock and Roll is really swing with a modern name. It began on the levees and plantations, took in folks songs, and featured blues and rhythm.” He said this in the 1950s. Now that we live in a global community, more influences have been added to, and will be added to, the definition of what is rock and roll.

For me, one of the most explosive shifts in musical direction came in 1971 with the creation of the Mahavishnu Orchestra with John McLaughlin, Billy Cobham, Jan Hammer, Jerry Goodman and Rick Laird. With drummer Billy Cobham, and a couple years later, Narada Michael Walden stepping into the Mahavishnu Orchestra, jazz officially rocked! In many ways, that funk-rock, jazz-fusion drumming concept was the template for my work with Journey.

I’m grateful for my touring with Ronnie Montrose where we were the support act for Journey in early 1978 and talent scout Neal Schon noticed what I bringing to rock and roll. Later that year, Neal, Steve Perry, Gregg Rolie, Ross Valory and Herbie Herbert invited me to become a Journey band-member, and it’s been an educational and rewarding ride!

Thanks to my children Ian and Elizabeth for keeping me in their hearts while I was away on long tours. And very special thanks to my wife Diane. We have been sharing our lives for the last 24 years, I love you dearly. Thanks to Jonathan Cain for the gifted song-writing and Arnel Pineda for keeping the legacy sound of Journey alive and moving forward. And a most important thanks to our fans from around the world that have kept Journey in their hearts and on their stereos. 

Ross Valory: One thing that you may not know is that this microphone is robotic. It’s supposed to come up and meet me where I am. Hello, microphone! Don’t make me come down there! Well, I know you’re really helpful, but you’re really not because there’s a big red clock that says I have three minutes, right? But then it says I only have 37 seconds. I also must say that Steve Smith did very well with his prepared speech. He worked the Teleprompter very well. I’m not going to even bother. I didn’t like mine. But I’ll start from the top and say that there’s a few things that were said earlier that I will repeat because their names deserve to be repeated. My life has been full of music from the very beginning. From the time I could hear. From the time they swabbed my ears out in the maternity ward, there was music everywhere. A large family, two talented parents who shared music with us, we learned from piano, ukulele, guitar. We all sang. As soon as I could, I was in a church choir, the school choir.

As soon as it was allowed, I could play an instrumental in symphonic band and so that continued all the way through high school. The family had a great variety of music to hear and be exposed to – anywhere from Miles Davis to Mozart, from Handel   to Fats Domino, from Glenn Miller to Dave Brubeck.

So somewhere in there, I thought, “That’s where my world was,” until a new kid came into town when I was a sophomore in high school. He goes, “Hey, I know who you are. I know you play in the symphonic band, whatever you play, guitar at home. And we need a bass player. I’m starting to deal with a bunch of your friends, and since you’re a guitarist, you can learn these parts very easily. Why don’t you get your mom to go down to the local music store, grab a bass, get an amplifier, we’ll make some change and have some fun?” I said, “OK.”

So, from that point, the life of music for me changed entirely, and here we are tonight. If that’s one booking, this could be the other one. If nothing else happens for me in music, this could be the best that it gets. There are many other people who I believe deserve this, and I’ll start by talking about someone I met in high school within one year of starting rock & roll. His name is Herbie Herbert. He is our former creator/partner/manager. And within five years of meeting him, we had created the beginnings of Journey with Gregg Rolie and Neal Schon. And we all know, or maybe need to know, that he put the blood, sweat and tears and all his energy into seeing this band succeed, and we are here to thank Herbie Herbert for that. 

But that, you know, we’re still here! What is happening? How have we continued? For the last 20 years, our current manager, John Baruck, and took a band out of exile and put them back on the map. We have him to thank. And then there’s all the fans, the hundreds of thousands of fans that have supported us for years. Thank you for this. All of you who have founded us, encouraged us, pushed us. They, our friends, deserve a piece of this award. And last but not least, out family members who maybe have suffered in our absence and given us hope, given us encouragement. Our family members. Yes. Our parents. My parents. And last but not least, the family who, and the love of my wife, Mary, who has understood and accepted this guy who goes away with the circus every year. Thank you so much.

Jonathan Cain: I just want to thank the Cubs for winning the World Series! I’d like begin by thanking my father and mother for believing in me. … from the time that I was eight years old and after, he later said to me, “Son, don’t stop believing.” On a life-changing phone call, as I started with my career back in the Seventies. He’s gone now. I miss you, dad and love you. Thanks to … Ralph Dodds, from the conservatory of Chicago, Jerry Milo … and to the late Buddy Killen, who gave me my first break in Nashville in 1969.

To my brother Tom who played drums with me in countless bands while we learned lessons together in rock & roll. To my brother Hal who always believed in my music. To the late Wolfman Jack and Don Kelly organization for opening doors and getting us started on the right path. To all the members of the Babies . To my brothers in Journey, for believing and trusting I could be part of it, or shifting and sustaining signature sound. To former band mates Steve Augeri and Deen Castronovo. To our music business family behind the scenes who work tirelessly, the record promotion people …   The DJs who gave us millions of spins. To the record distributors, who made sure our music made it to stores and on the shelves.

To Live Nation and the local promoters and most of all, our faithful fans who stood by us through the years. During the ups and downs. To our wise managers, Herbie Herbert and John Baruck, for keeping us on track during the tough times. We shared over 40 years having blessed relationships with all of you. And I believe relationships are the key to building a ramp and maintaining a presence in our music business. Thanks to the members of the Hall who voted to honor us tonight. Finally, I thank my three children, Madison, Weston and Liza for their understanding and accepting their dad had to hit the road all those years. And to my wife, Paula, who stands beside me with love and respect. I love you all. And thanks to you, Lord, for keeping your guiding hand on us all those years. This honor was truly worth the wait. God bless.

Steve Perry:  Hello, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! You sure look good to me tonight. I’m going to keep my cheat sheet here because I’ve got a lot to say. I’m going to start with, when I was living in Los Angeles, I was looking to get a record deal, trying my very best. It was tough to get signed at those times. And I would always go to the Starwood to see Journey perform cause these guys have the most amazing musical ability. I’ve never seen a band like that in my life. So every time they’d go to the Starwood Club, I had to go watch with amazement. Though their musicianship was absolutely par to none, there was one instrument that was flying about the entire city of Los Angeles. That was the magic fingers of Neal Schon’s guitar! Somehow, one of my demo tapes fell into the hands of Herbie Herbert. I would not be here tonight if it was not for Herbie Herbert. Because he did not have to call me. He gets tapes all the time. But there’s something about the demo tape, and he called me. And the next thing I knew, because of Herbie, I was writing music with Neal Schon. And the very first song we ever wrote together was “Patiently,” you remember that? So, I absolutely must tell you, I must thank Herbie Herbert for believing in me. Thank you.

Aynsley Dunbar, Gregg Rolie, Steve Smith, Neal Schon, Jonathan Cain, Ross Valory. Are you fucking shitting me? Any singer would give his ass for that shit. They played so well. So, I want to thank them for all the music we’ve written. Thank you, Gregg for letting me live at your house to write the Infinity record. Thank you for letting me live at your house, Neal Schon. Thank you so much, Jon, for all the songs that we all have written together. Steve Smith’s amazing drums. Basso profundo, Ross Valory. Alright, guys, I thank you so much for all the music we’ve written and recorded together. It will be forever in my heart.

I must give a complete shout out to someone who sings his heart out every night, and it’s Arnel Pineda. Where are you, Arnel? Where are you?He must be backstage. To Arnel, I love you. Woooo! Hi Arnel! Thank you. I’d like to thank my longtime attorney, Lee Philips. I also would like to thank my old, high school R&B band. It was called The Sullies and it’s kind of where it all started for me. I would like to thank them. Thanks to Rob Stringer and the team at Columbia Records.

The Journey road crew. The original Journey road crew. Who busted their ass every night, every day. Load in, load out. Tirelessly. Day after day. Week after week. Year after year. Herbie knows that’s true. We would not be here today if it wasn’t for them, too. And also, I would like to send my condolences to the families of the members of Jim McCandless, Jackie Villanueva and recently, the great Benny Collins. Lastly, Fan Asylum was Journey’s first fan club. Herbie and Tim McQuaid got together and said, “You’re going to be our fan club; this is going to be great.” That’s what happened. Tim McQuaid, Lora Beard and Cyndy Poon made it all happen for us. So the fan club – Fan Asylum, was brilliant. I want to thank them.

Now, speaking of fans [applause], speaking of fans! You’re the ones who put us here! You are the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! You put us here! We would not be here had it not been for you and your tireless love and consistent devotion. You never have stopped. And from my heart, I must tell you, I have been gone a long time, I understand that. But I want you to know, you’ve never not been in my heart. I want you to know that. And I love each and everyone of you. Thank you so very much!

Following Rock Hall Nomination, Journey Says ‘Door Is Open’ for Reunion With Vocalist Steve Perry

The members of Journey are hoping that if they're inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2017, current singer Arnel Pineda will be able to go in with them.

Jonathan Cain and Arnel Pineda of Journey

The members of Journey are hoping that if they’re inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2017, current singer Arnel Pineda will be able to go in with them.

Journey received its first Rock Hall nomination earlier this month, and Pineda — the Filipino native who’s been fronting the group since 2007 — was not on the list of members getting a nod (nor was original drummer Aynsley Dunbar, who played on Journey’s first four albums).

“That’s wrong, y’know?” keyboardist-guitarist Jonathan Cain tells Billboard. “I don’t think it’s fair. There is no Journey without Arnel right now. He certainly has learned his stripes. He’s been with us longer than any lead singer has consecutively stayed in the band. He’s given us 10 years straight, not running off or doing this, doing that, just being The Guy. So that’s worth something.”

Member induction controversies are nothing new to the Rock Hall. Just look at recent flaps over who was inducted for groups such as Kiss, Deep Purple and Chicago, among others. Most recently, former Pearl Jam drummer Dave Abbruzzese voiced disappointment about not being included in that band’s nomination this year. Cain indicates that if inducted, Journey will lobby for Pineda’s inclusion but isn’t sure how effective it can be.

“We have no control of it; It’s just the politics of it all,” Cain notes. “What are you gonna do? You’re just gonna accept what’s given you in this situation. But I think it’s a significant oversight, for sure, and maybe they’ll reconsider when they think about it.”

The 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees: Who Will Actually Get In?

Of course, Journey itself has long been considered a significant oversight by the Rock Hall, and that’s made the group’s first-ever nomination this year a significant development. “The fans are stoked. They’re very, very excited and they’ve been very supportive,” Cain says. The group is actively campaigning for the fan vote that’s being conducted via the Rock Hall website . “I think a lot of fans don’t realize they can vote, and that’s why we’re trying to encourage it,” Cain says.

The band itself is taking a wait-and-see attitude as voting is going on. “It’s been a little bit of a wait just to be nominated,” says Cain, who recently released a faith-based solo album called What God Wants To Hear. “We just had to be patient. I figured it would come around. We’ve never been the critic’s choice; They bashed us in the ’80s and every album we put out they just pretty much laughed at, and so much of that Hall is writers, critics. But what we’ve done over the years is quietly just continued to be relevant, so maybe they weren’t right about us. It’s funny, ’cause every one of our opening acts, it seems like they’re in the Hall of Fame, starting with Cheap Trick, Joan Jett, Steve Miller, Heart. It’s pretty funny, and I’m happy for all of them.

“But I think everybody [in Journey] is thrilled to be nominated. There’s no doubt it’s a great honor, for sure. If it doesn’t happen next year it’s going to eventually happen. I’m confident God’ll make it happen.”

A Journey induction, of course, brings about the prospect of a reunion with frontman Steve Perry for the first time since 1998. Perry has been mum about the nomination, but Cain says he’d be welcome. “I can’t really speak for him in that regard, but certainly the door’s always been open for him to join us any time he wants,” Cain says.

Journey is largely off the road for now but is planning to tour again in 2017. Cain says the group is “looking at” making a new album, its first since 2011’s Eclipse , and he acknowledges that What God Wants To Hear has “really tuned on my creative juices…that will probably lead me to the next Journey record. I was sort of stuck for a long time, creatively.” But other factors will have to be negotiated before the group hunkers down to record.

“The business is just really disheartening right now,” Cain says. “It costs so much money to make a CD. They’re almost cost-prohibitive, and you’re lucky if you can break even at this stage. You’re really only doing it for the fans. I do think we have another album in us, but we’ve got to tighten up as a band and get our direction sorted out first. I think the last record we made was kind of a departure from what I think people want from Journey, so direction-wise we’ve got to get on the same page before we move forward. Once we do that, I think the songs will start coming out.”

JOURNEY Drummer Says STEVE PERRY 'Declined' To Sing At ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME Induction

Steve Perry reunited with JOURNEY for the first time in years last month as they were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame . The iconic singer appeared onstage with his former bandmates as they each gave speeches, but did not perform with the group later in the event.

Asked in a new interview with Las Vegas Weekly what sort of interactions the members of JOURNEY had with Perry that day and that night, drummer Steve Smith said: "Whatever you saw on stage was it! [ Laughs ] I think some of the guys saw him backstage for a little bit, but I just saw him onstage. It was great to see him. It had been since 2005, when we got a star in Hollywood — that was the last time I saw him. So it was good to see him, and he was very gracious. I thought he gave a beautiful speech, thanking the band and the management and the fans. And also, he acknowledged [current JOURNEY vocalist] Arnel Pineda , which that was really a beautiful moment. It really makes it clear that he's passing the torch to Arnel — he's the lead singer in JOURNEY , and he's doing an amazing job. He's a tremendous singer and a really compelling frontman."

Smith was also asked what sort of discussions there were about having Perry sing with JOURNEY that night, and how far those talks got.

"There's really not much of a story there," the drummer explained. "We asked him if he wanted to sing, and he declined. He said no, but that he would be there."

During his Rock Hall acceptance speech, Perry praised each of JOURNEY musicians as well as, Pineda , who was not being inducted into the Rock Hall . "I must give a shoutout to a man who sings his heart out every night, Arnel Pineda ," Perry said.

Perry concluded his remarks by thanking the JOURNEY fans, crediting them for "put[ting] us here." He added: "You're the rock and roll hall of fame! From my heart, I must tell you, I've been gone a long time, [but] you've never not been in my heart. Thank you so very much."

After the individual speeches were completed, the Pineda -fronted version of JOURNEY performed three songs "Lights" , "Separate Ways" and "Don't Stop Believin'" .

Perry 's final full concert with JOURNEY took place in early 1987. He later rejoined his bandmates for a brief performance in 1991 to honor late concert promoter Bill Graham . He also appeared with JOURNEY when they received a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame in 2005.

In addition to Perry and guitarist Neal Schon , Jonathan Cain , Ross Valory , Gregg Rolie and Aynsley Dunbar were inducted, as well as Smith , who's on his third run with the group.

Seattle rockers Pearl Jam, the late rapper Tupac Shakur and 1970s hitmaking band Journey were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Friday night.

Joan Baez, Electric Light Orchestra and Yes were also part of the 2017 class inducted at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, which kicked off with a tribute to Chuck Berry.

The new inductees closed the multi-hour event with a group performance, and before that Pearl Jam electrified with a performance of its well-known songs.

David Letterman inducted the band, and brought a small guitar and letter onstage that he said Vedder gave to his son days before his late-night show ended in 2015.

Letterman wasn’t the only fan in the room: As Vedder thanked his wife during his speech, one male fan from a seat up high screamed, “I love you, Eddie!”

“Shoot, honey, I thought you were sitting down in the front,” Vedder said to laughs.

His wife, Jill, was teary-eyed in the audience as fans continued to cheer.

Vedder also used his speech to discuss climate change, saying “climate change is real, that’s not fake news.” He also said his daughter Olivia was a big fan of Chance the Rapper, and thanked the Grammy-winning hip-hop star for his charitable contributions to Chicago.

Speaking of rappers, Shakur — who died in 1996 — was remembered by Snoop Dogg with a touching and playful speech.

Dogg, a former label mate and friend of Shakur, says he attended the event to make sure the rapper, actor and poet is remembered as a “strong black man that stood for his.”

Dogg, a marijuana enthusiast, also says it was Shakur who first gave him weed. “That’s right — Tupac got Snoop Dogg smoking blunts,” he said to laughs from the audience. Later, Alicia Keys performed a medley of Shakur’s songs on piano, including “Dear Mama” and “Changes.”

One of the night’s most anticipated performances was Journey’s. But despite earlier reports, Steve Perry did not perform with the current Journey members. Instead, Arnel Pineda sang lead as the band performed their hits, including “Don’t Stop Believin’.”

Perry, estranged from the band for many years, did embrace guitarist and co-founder Neal Schon onstage. “You’re the one who put us here,” Perry said to the Journey fans, earning one of the night’s loudest applauses. “I’ve been gone a long time but you’ve never not been in my heart.”

Like Shakur and Pearl Jam, Baez and ELO were all elected in their first year as nominees.

Baez, one of folk’s most iconic voices, said it felt “cool” to be inducted. She also said earning the Rock Hall honor would help young people learn who she is, and what she’s accomplished.

“My granddaughter had no clue who I was until I took her backstage to a Taylor Swift concert,” said Baez, who added that her granddaughter took a selfie with Swift and now had “newfound respect for her grandmother.”

She was inducted by Jackson Browne, who said the first album he bought with his own money was Baez’s second album.

ELO — who kicked off the show with Berry’s “Roll Over Beethoven” — and progressive British rockers Yes were also inducted Friday.

“It was 49 years ago tonight I met Chris Squire at a bar,” singer Jon Anderson said of the band’s founding bass player who died in 2015. “Magic moment.”

Berry wasn’t the only late legend who was honored: Lenny Kravitz paid tribute to Prince after the “In Memoriam” section with an explosive performance of “When Doves Cry,” backed by a choir and beaming purple lights.

Pharrell said kind words about Nile Rodgers, who received a special honor at the event, which will air April 29 as a special on HBO.

To be eligible, all of the nominees had to have released their first recording no later than 1991. Inductees will eventually be enshrined in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame museum in Cleveland.

Journey Members Defend Current Lead Singer Over Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Snub, Say Door Is Open For Steve Perry Reunion

The members of Journey are speaking out regarding the band’s first-ever Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nomination and the fact that longtime lead singer Arnel Pineda wasn’t included in the nod. In an interview with Billboard , Journey keyboardist-guitarist Jonathan Cain said it’s wrong that the long-overdue nomination didn’t include Pineda, the Filipino singer who has been fronting the band since 2007.

“I don’t think it’s fair,” Cain said of the singer’s snub. “There is no Journey without Arnel right now. He certainly has earned his stripes. He’s been with us longer than any lead singer has consecutively stayed in the band. He’s given us 10 years straight, not running off or doing this, doing that, just being The Guy. So that’s worth something.”

#NEALSCHON#arnelpineda #nealschonjourneyfounder #gratiude #honorall A photo posted by Journey (@journeymusicofficial) on Sep 16, 2016 at 1:40am PDT

Cain admitted that the rest of Journey has no control over the Rock Hall politics, but he feels that leaving Arnel off the list is “a significant oversight” that he hopes the committee will reconsider should Journey earn an induction.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has a long history of member induction controversies, and Pineda wasn’t the only Journey member snubbed by the organization. Original drummer Aynsley Dunbar, who played on Journey’s first four albums, was also left off of the nomination list.

Journey’s nomination for Rock Hall honors is years overdue. The band’s first album was released in 1975, which means they were first eligible for the nomination in 2000.

Cain pointed out that all of his band’s opening acts from the ’70s and ’80s, including Cheap Trick, Joan Jett, Steve Miller, and Heart, are already inducted into the exclusive Hall of Fame, and he has no doubt that if the band doesn’t make it this year, they will eventually join their peers.

Of course, the biggest question about a Journey induction would be a possible reunion with former frontman Steve Perry. The rock legend has not spoken about his former band’s nomination, but Cain says he would be happy to reunite with the man who debuted some of the band’s biggest songs, including “Don’t Stop Believin,” “Open Arms” and “Wheel In the Sky.”

“I can’t really speak for him in that regard, but certainly the door’s always been open for him to join us any time he wants,” Cain told Billboard.

But getting Perry on board — even for Journey’s inevitable Rock Hall induction — could prove to be difficult. After selling more than 80 million records and packing stadiums as Journey’s frontman, Perry left the band for good in 1996 and he remains estranged from his former bandmates. In a previous interview with Billboard , founding Journey guitarist Neil Schon said the band does not speak to Perry at all, and they’re not sure why communication has been cut off. Schon briefly contacted the singer.

“There’s no communication at all,” Schon revealed.

“I feel like I’ve reached out in every humane way I can… just to be friends, like we were. There’s no reason not to be. I’ve tried to get his real phone number instead of talking through his attorney, but he will not give it to me, not even to say hello.”

That said, Cain added that there will always be “an open chair” for Perry should he ever want to sing a song with Journey again.

“He chooses to remain aloof and that’s fine,” Cain told Billboard . “Peace with him… It’s almost 30 years since Steve’s done a gig with us, so we’re not holding our breath.”

In a statement several years ago to the Oprah Winfrey Show , Steve Perry indicated that there are no hard feelings and that he wishes Journey well .

“Though we’ve gone our separate ways, I will be forever grateful for our time together…the music we created…and our faithful fans,” Perry said of Journey. “Continued success to all of you.”

Steve Perry last sang a Journey song publicly in 2014 when he turned up at an Eels concert in St. Paul, Minnesota, and joined the band for an encore that included the Journey classics “Open Arms” and “Lovin’, Touchin’, Squeezin’.” Now, Journey fans would love to see him reunite with the classic lineup of the band after Rock Hall inductees are announced in December.

Take a look at the video below to see Journey performing one of their biggest songs, “Open Arms.”

Journey Nominated For 2020 Songwriters Hall Of Fame

Journey Nominated For 2020 Songwriters Hall Of Fame | Society Of Rock Videos

via journey/YouTube

It’s About Time

Journey members Jonathan Cain, Steve Perry and Neal Schon are among the nominees for next year’s Songwriters Hall of Fame. The 51st Annual Induction & Awards Gala will be held in New York City on June 11, 2020. Over two dozen artists have been nominated for writing some of the most influential songs of all time.

Journey’s nomination comes two years after the iconic rock group were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

According to the Songwriters Hall of Fame website, “As members of Journey, keyboardist Jonathan Cain, lead singer Steve Perry and guitarist Neal Schon, each had a hand in writing some of the hugely successful arena rock band’s monster hits. These include the anthem “Don’t Stop Believin’” (all three shared songwriting credits), the much-covered (Mariah Carey, Barry Manilow, Boyz II Men, Celine Dion) power ballad “Open Arms” (Cain and Perry), “Who’s Crying Now” (Cain and Perry), and “Wheel in the Sky” (Schon)—also notable for its unusual structure (it opens with a 28-second instrumental). Such songs and Journey’s stature as a major concert draw led to its induction in 2017 into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.”

Eligible voting members have until the midnight of December 16, 2019 to vote three nominees from a songwriter and three from a performing songwriter category.

Journey Reacts to Rock Hall of Fame Nomination - And Current Lead Singer's Snub

The members of Journey are hoping that if they're inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2017, current singer Arnel Pineda will be able to go in with them.

Journey received its first Rock Hall nomination earlier this month, and Pineda -- the Filipino native who's been fronting the group since 2007 -- was not on the list of members getting a nod (nor was original drummer Aynsley Dunbar, who played on Journey's first four albums).

"That's wrong, y'know?" keyboardist-guitarist Jonathan Cain tells Billboard. "I don't think it's fair. There is no Journey without Arnel right now. He certainly has learned his stripes. He's been with us longer than any lead singer has consecutively stayed in the band. He's given us 10 years straight, not running off or doing this, doing that, just being The Guy. So that's worth something."

Member induction controversies are nothing new to the Rock Hall. Just look at recent flaps over who was inducted for groups such as Kiss, Deep Purple and Chicago, among others. Most recently, former Pearl Jam drummer Dave Abbruzzese voiced disappointment about not being included in that band's nomination this year. Cain indicates that if inducted, Journey will lobby for Pineda's inclusion but isn't sure how effective it can be.

"We have no control of it; It's just the politics of it all," Cain notes. "What are you gonna do? You're just gonna accept what's given you in this situation. But I think it's a significant oversight, for sure, and maybe they'll reconsider when they think about it."

Of course, Journey itself has long been considered a significant oversight by the Rock Hall, and that's made the group's first-ever nomination this year a significant development. "The fans are stoked. They're very, very excited and they've been very supportive," Cain says. The group is actively campaigning for the fan vote that's being conducted via the Rock Hall website. "I think a lot of fans don't realize they can vote, and that's why we're trying to encourage it," Cain says.

The band itself is taking a wait-and-see attitude as voting is going on. "It's been a little bit of a wait just to be nominated," says Cain, who recently released a faith-based solo album called What God Wants To Hear. "We just had to be patient. I figured it would come around. We've never been the critic's choice; They bashed us in the '80s and every album we put out they just pretty much laughed at, and so much of that Hall is writers, critics. But what we've done over the years is quietly just continued to be relevant, so maybe they weren't right about us. It's funny, 'cause every one of our opening acts, it seems like they're in the Hall of Fame, starting with Cheap Trick, Joan Jett, Steve Miller, Heart. It's pretty funny, and I'm happy for all of them.

"But I think everybody [in Journey] is thrilled to be nominated. There's no doubt it's a great honor, for sure. If it doesn't happen next year it's going to eventually happen. I'm confident God'll make it happen."

A Journey induction, of course, brings about the prospect of a reunion with frontman Steve Perry for the first time since 1998. Perry has been mum about the nomination, but Cain says he'd be welcome. "I can't really speak for him in that regard, but certainly the door's always been open for him to join us any time he wants," Cain says.

Journey is largely off the road for now but is planning to tour again in 2017. Cain says the group is "looking at" making a new album, its first since 2011's Eclipse, and he acknowledges that What God Wants To Hear has "really tuned on my creative juices...that will probably lead me to the next Journey record. I was sort of stuck for a long time, creatively." But other factors will have to be negotiated before the group hunkers down to record.

"The business is just really disheartening right now," Cain says. "It costs so much money to make a CD. They're almost cost-prohibitive, and you're lucky if you can break even at this stage. You're really only doing it for the fans. I do think we have another album in us, but we've got to tighten up as a band and get our direction sorted out first. I think the last record we made was kind of a departure from what I think people want from Journey, so direction-wise we've got to get on the same page before we move forward. Once we do that, I think the songs will start coming out."

The Hall of Fame is made for players like Adrián Beltré. As a pure hitter, reliable slugger and slick third baseman, Beltré had few peers: No other infielder in the history of baseball has 3,000 hits, 400 homers and five Gold Glove awards. Beltré, now 44, was a lock for the Hall of Fame.

As a first-time Cooperstown candidate, Beltré did not need to follow the breathless tracking of public ballots this winter. Yet he still could not feel secure, he said, until his wife and son assured him on Tuesday that election day looked promising. He could savor it.

“That made me relax a little bit more, and I kind of forced myself to try to enjoy this moment,” Beltré said from his home in Southern California, moments after achieving his sport’s greatest honor. “It was going to be a nice moment, and probably the last moment in baseball that I was going to accomplish, being at the pinnacle of the game.”

Beltré had company at the summit on Tuesday, with Todd Helton and Joe Mauer joining him in the new class of Hall of Famers. Former manager Jim Leyland, elected by the Contemporary Baseball Era Committee last month, will also be inducted at the ceremony July 21.

Andruw Jones' vote totals trending upward

Andruw Jones' vote totals trending upward

(Jason Getz / USA Today)

With 210 ballots turned in according to the Hall of Fame Tracker , Andruw Jones is trending toward an eventual induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

Currently sitting at 70 percent of the vote, the 10-time Gold Glover is unlikely to be inducted in the class of 2024. But in his seventh year on the ballot, Jones has gained the kind of momentum that usually lands a player in Cooperstown.

Many fans wonder how that can happen after Jones received only 7.3 percent of the vote in his first year on the ballot in 2018. Isn’t a Hall of Famer a Hall of Famer immediately?

It’s a fair question.

This is where the Rule of 10 imposed by the HOF comes into play. Each year, Baseball Writers' Association of America voters are limited to voting for 10 players regardless of how many deserving candidates are on the ballot.

In Jones’ first year on the ballot, nine candidates received at least 51.2 percent of the vote. The ballot was stacked with players who would eventually be voted into the Hall as well as several players who came close but weren’t voted in. Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Vladimir Guerrero, Trevor Hoffman, Chipper Jones, Edgar Martinez, Fred McGriff, Mike Mussina, Scott Rolen, Curt Schilling, Gary Sheffield, Jim Thome, Omar Vizquel, Billy Wagner and Larry Walker all were included on the 2018 ballot, which made it easier for Jones to be overlooked.

Jones only climbed to 7.5 percent on a similarly stacked ballot in 2019 that featured eight players who received at least 54.6 percent of the vote.

Fortunately for Jones and others, eight candidates were elected in those two years, which cleared space for other deserving players to receive attention. Jones’ total increased to 19.4 in 2020, 33.9 in 2021 then to 41.1 in 2022 and to 58.1 percent last year.

Do some voters change their minds later in the process? Without question. But stacked ballots were a prominent issue for several years as voters weighed what to do with players tied to performance-enhancing drug scandals. Fortunately for Jones, he was able to stay on the ballot in each of those first two years by receiving 5 percent of the vote, which allowed further examination of his HOF case. Now, Jones could get in as soon as 2025.

Daniel Barbarisi’s ballot

Carlos Beltrán, Adrián Beltré, Todd Helton, Andruw Jones, Joe Mauer, Billy Wagner

Looking at Mauer’s career numbers in aggregate — .306/.388/.439, 143 homers, 428 doubles, amassed over 923 games at catcher, 603 at first base, 310 at DH — it strikes me that he is one of those odd cases where the whole isn’t actually greater than the sum of its parts. The whole is excellent in its own right — those are good numbers. They’re even Hall of Fame numbers, with the right context. But they don’t fully do justice to the individual pieces that comprise it, those superlative seasons early in his career that couldn’t possibly have come from a man playing his position.

Remember what a unicorn he was? Back when he was hitting .328 and .347 and then finally .363 as a catcher , with respectable-to-excellent slugging through that whole period. Mauer and the obviously dissimilar stolen base threat Jason Kendall are always paired up a bit in my mind because they both reside in the neighborhood of “Guys who do things catchers aren’t supposed to do.”

And then he stopped doing so many of those things, and stopped being a catcher really at all, and without that all-important context for a while it felt like everybody had been robbed of watching something special; Mauer at first base was a pale imitation. Safe to say we didn’t understand head injuries well enough then, certainly still don’t, but it’s hard not to wonder how long he could have kept up that brilliant production from the catcher’s spot if injuries hadn’t been an issue.

Grading on a curve when it comes to injuries is tricky — who’s to say what this or that player could have been if it were not for some injury or another, and so it’s cleaner just to say what they actually were. But in Mauer’s case, that’s clear: a special hitter and excellent defensive catcher and pitch framer whose numbers put him among the very best to ever play a demanding position. To me, that’s an easy vote. My semi-informed guess is that Mauer doesn’t get in this year, but hopefully his time is coming soon, if only for a chance to remember how high the highs were.

Latest voting updates

Joe Mauer could be making the trip to Cooperstown this summer.

With nearly half of the estimated ballots already made public, Mauer appeared to be in good shape as of Sunday night to be elected into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in his first year on the ballot.

The Minnesota Twins legend received votes on 83.2 percent of the first 190 ballots made public, according to the Hall of Fame Tracker. The threshold for election into the Hall is 75 percent.

The Hall of Fame will announce which players have been elected to its 2024 class at 5 p.m. (CT) on Tuesday.

Should Mauer remain above 75 percent, he’d surely join fellow first-timer Adrián Beltré, whose name appeared on all but two ballots (98.9 percent).

Here's where the rest of the field stood on Monday.

In a sure-to-fail attempt at brevity, instead of addressing each of my votes, I thought I’d just bullet point the general thought process that begat the selections.

  • I believe in being at least as inclusive as we’ve been for previous generations. We’ve voted in fewer and fewer players as a percentage of the whole with every passing decade — down from 2 percent to 3 percent of the whole to around 1.5 percent, as Mike Petriello showed on MLB.com in 2020 — and no matter what you think of the modern game and its training methods, it doesn’t sit right with me to think that players are worse now.
  • I believe that before MLB had a testing policy in place in the 2004 season, league leadership was complicit in the steroid issue (the commissioner of the era, Bud Selig, is in the Hall of Fame, and that seems significant), and I’m more lenient toward players in that bucket. After testing was in place, players knew the stakes, and the numbers that I use to judge them are in question.
  • I believe in wins above replacement as a framework because it’s unique in its ability to bring together all facets of the game into one number. I also consult Jay Jaffe’s JAWS system because it considers the relationship between a player’s peak abilities and their longevity. I don’t believe batting average or hits (alone) are of outsized importance within the context of all the things a player can do, and stats like RBIs and runs are typically influenced by the team’s situation.
  • That said, I believe in offensive stats over defensive stats, since the former have been proven to be more reflective of true talent and the latter have only recently begun improving rapidly. A player like Jimmy Rollins — who was, by some measures, below average with the bat compared to the league when he was in it — has to have all-time elite defense to get my vote.
  • I believe league trends in player usage are pushing us away from the volume that used to give players the chance to rack up the traditional benchmarks. A starting pitcher without 250 wins, a position player without 2,000 hits — I’m just not sure these things bother me as much as they might have bothered other members of the electorate in the past.
  • I believe that relievers should be compared to relievers. In overall production, relievers pale against their counterparts. But if we ignore the position because of that fact, we dismiss a whole class of players who are currently throwing around half the innings in a given season.
  • I believe that a player can be an elite accumulator. Consider someone like Abreu, who, as some people rightly point out, was never a top-five player in the league — in one season. But by being so consistently excellent from 1998 to 2004, he was actually the fifth-best player over that time frame. Posting matters.
  • Well, so much for being concise. I tried!

Billy Wagner's journey to the doorstep of the Hall of Fame

Billy Wagner's journey to the doorstep of the Hall of Fame

Billy Wagner coaches baseball at the Miller School of Albemarle, a 1,600-acre oasis in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Charlottesville, Va. It’s a private boarding school that feels more like a small college, he says, and his program is a three-season enterprise — fall, winter and spring — for kids who have every reason to dream big.

“Yesterday the rain was so bad that the school canceled afternoon practices, and they were like, ‘Can I come to your house and work out in your cage?’” Wagner said by phone last week. “And I’m like, ‘No, no, no — go home.’ But you can’t take their passion away.”

This is the life Wagner wanted in 2010 when he retired as the best reliever in the game. That season, with the Atlanta Braves, Wagner’s 1.43 ERA was the lowest in baseball among pitchers with 70 appearances. He averaged 13.5 strikeouts per nine innings, made his seventh All-Star team and helped Atlanta reach the playoffs.

Wagner was 39; chronologically, the time was right to leave. But he could have kept pitching, could have stacked more paychecks onto a fortune that had reached nearly $100 million in career earnings. He could have made a stronger case for the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Next Tuesday the Hall will announce the results of this year’s voting by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. An official asked Wagner to be home with his cellphone nearby, but Wagner, respectfully, said he couldn’t do that. He’s not very good with disappointment, he said, and can’t bear the thought of waiting for a call that might not come.

As a fan of the Hall of Fame Tracker operated by Ryan Thibodaux (aka @NotMrTibbs on X), I’ve seen how his followers hate “drops” — voting for a player one year but not the next. The justifiably snarky joke is, “I guess (candidate) had a terrible year.” Har-har. For the record, I plan on voting for Bobby Abreu again next year, as he ranks 21st all-time in JAWS among right fielders, sandwiched between Hall of Famers Dave Winfield (20th) and Vladimir Guerrero (22nd). But I dropped Abreu this year as part of some strategic voting. There are players who need every checked box they can get to clear the 75 percent threshold (Sheffield, Wagner) and others who need to generate momentum as their years on the ballot wane. I surprised myself by voting so enthusiastically for Utley, but his JAWS ranks 12th all-time among second basemen and his WAR-7 (the sum of a player’s seven best WAR seasons) trails only Rodriguez among players on the ballot this year.

The early returns suggest Beltrán won’t be getting into the Hall of Fame this year. That’s the bad news for those of us who believe he belongs in Cooperstown. The good news? He’ll likely get the call in the next two, three or four years. And he darned well better get that call, or else I’m going to be setting a world record for being a broken record.

As I wrote last year, and will do so again next year, Beltrán has already been punished for his role in the 2017 Houston Astros sign-stealing scandal. And the punishment was a whopper: Hired later to manage the New York Mets, he never even made it to spring training. When the sign-stealing verdict came in, Beltrán was out as manager of the Mets.

A.J. Hinch, former Astros manager, sat out during a one-year suspension and then was hired to manage the Detroit Tigers. Alex Cora, the former Astros bench coach who in 2018 managed the Red Sox to a World Series championship, also was handed a one-year suspension after he had already stepped away as Boston’s manager via one of those mutual-parting-of-ways deals.

But Red Sox upper management was practically in tears after making the announcement, all but telegraphing that Cora would be back in 2021. Which is exactly what happened.

Fair enough. Hinch and Cora paid dearly, even if, OK, their punishment was sitting out the 2020 pandemic season. By whatever means one measures their culpability and the ensuing punishments, they should have been invited to return.

And yet here’s Beltrán, stuck in Fly Creek — which is my way of saying he’s just outside of Cooperstown. (Fly Creek, N.Y., is only a few miles from Cooperstown.)

Admittedly, we could remove the cheating scandal from the discussion and Beltrán would not be a Willie Mays-like Hall of Fame lock. But he combined power (435 home runs) with speed (312 stolen bases), won three Gold Glove awards, had 70.1 career WAR according to Baseball Reference (identical to Hall of Famers Gary Carter and Scott Rolen), and … let’s stop there because, again, it’s not stats that are keeping Beltrán out of the Hall. It’s bats, or whatever the Astros were using when they banged on trash barrels to pass along the other teams’ signals.

A year ago, I characterized the Astros’ sign-stealing caper as something you might have expected in a 1930s “Little Rascals” short but not in big-league baseball. This year I’m breaking up the routine by suggesting it was something you might have seen in a 1930s Marx Brothers movie, only with Harpo squeezing some kind of horn to relay the signals, and actor Edgar Kennedy as MLB commissioner Rob Manfred doing a slow burn after discovering the scheme. Now unless your name is Ben Mankiewicz of Turner Classic Movies, you probably have no idea what I’m talking about. But that’s the entire point: What the Astros did was something out of old-timey Hollywood slapstick, and it cheapened the game.

Beltrán paid a price for that. He shouldn’t have to pay for the rest of his life.

2024 Baseball Hall of Fame voting: Prediction, time, TV channel, live stream, how to watch reveal online

The 2024 baseball hall of fame vote will be revealed on tuesday -- who will join adrián beltré.

beltre-getty-2.png

The results of the Baseball Hall of Fame vote, from the BBWAA ballot, will be revealed on Tuesday evening. We already know that manager Jim Leyland is headed in  after the Contemporary Baseball Era Committee elected him back in December . Which players will join him? This vote will reveal those results. 

2024 Baseball Hall of Fame vote details

  • Time : 6 p.m. ET | Date : Tuesday, Jan. 23
  • TV channel : MLB Network
  • Live stream : fubo (try for free)

Let's dive into the biggest storylines from the vote and conclude with a prediction on the 2024 Hall of Fame class. As always when it comes to projecting Hall of Fame results, Ryan Thibodaux's Ballot Tracker is heavily used .

1. Beltré to fly in with ease

Among publicly revealed ballots so far, only two voters have left Adrián Beltré off. Both voted for just Alex Rodriguez and Manny Ramirez (we'll get to them). Regardless of any reason for or against a Beltré vote, we know that he will not be inducted unanimously but will get in on his first attempt. 

I've already covered Beltré's prowess as one of the greatest third basemen in baseball history . 

2. Sheffield falls off

This isn't a done deal, as there's still an incredibly minute sliver of a chance that Gary Sheffield makes it in. There's about a 99.99% chance he doesn't get to 75% of the vote, however, meaning Sheffield will have gone through his maximum of 10 years on the ballot without gaining induction to the Hall. It's hard to see a veteran/era committee any time soon that puts Sheff in, so that is that. He's likely to end up with around 2/3 of the vote, which just isn't good enough to get in. 

I'm pro-Sheffield and have made his case numerous times, including here . 

3. Mauer likely in

Joe Mauer was one of those candidates where I wasn't sure if the voting body would favor him highly enough for a first-year induction, but the returns right now look like he's going to make it in. He's been polling with around 5/6ths (83.3%) of the vote since ballots were sent out. The biggest drops between public and private ballots are in the 7-8% range, so it's entirely possible that Mauer ends up in the low-70s and misses induction this season. The odds are in his favor at this point, though. 

I've previously written why Mauer belongs in the Hall . 

4. Helton, Wagner close

Here's the major drama. 

Todd Helton got 72.2% of the vote last year and he's only gained a few new voters while also having lost some. It really seems like he'll be in the mid-70s and, remember, he needs 75% to get in. It's going down to the wire. I discussed Helton's candidacy here .

That could also be the case with Billy Wagner. He has a ton of momentum and got to 68.1% last season. He has gained more than a handful of voters, but is still polling slightly below Helton. It looks like there's a chance Wagner works his way up into the mid-70s, but he could still fall shy of 75%. I talked Wagner, along with several others, here . 

5. Jones should be within striking range

While I don't have much confidence in a prediction either way on Helton or Wagner, I'm very confident that Andruw Jones won't make it in this time around. He will, however, get right within range to where it's realistic for him to make it next year. He's arguably the greatest defensive center fielder ever and could also hit plenty. 

6. A-Rod, Manny, stagnate

Alex Rodriguez and Manny Ramirez have statistical cases that easily align with a Hall of Fame resume, but they are also bogged down with PED suspensions. While the voting body continues to evolve, albeit slowly, toward a more new-school bloc, neither of these candidates is gaining any momentum. Manny appears to be stuck around 1/3 of the vote while A-Rod has a chance to get to 40% in his third year. I think he falls short of it, but even if he makes it there, it doesn't appear to be enough movement from his first year (34.3% in 2022) to believe it's meaningful. I dived deeper into this topic here .

7. Momentum for Beltrán?

Carlos Beltrán has the numbers that say he should be a Hall of Famer and I've covered as much . He also has the 2017 Astros sign-stealing scandal and it helped to keep him at 46.5% last year in his first time on the ballot. He could use a decent jump this year in order to have some optimism for his future chances at induction. He has gained a good chunk of votes so far and it looks like he'll easily clear 55% and maybe even get to 60%. If that's the case, I'd say he'll make it pretty soon. 

8. Strong first showing for Utley

Similar to Mauer, but with a lesser case, I've been extremely curious on Chase Utley and how he'll fare here in his first time on the ballot. At this point, we can be sure he will not make it in this year but he'll also remain safely on the ballot. It appears he'll sit around the 40% range and while that isn't a sure thing by any stretch, we've seen a decent number of players come in lower than that on their first ballot and still make the Hall of Fame eventually. Assuming the returns right now aren't fluky and Utley does come in around 40%, his chances of one day making it are pretty solid.

Here's my breakdown of Utley as a peak candidate .

Predictions

Beltré is obviously in and he'll get more than 95% of the vote. Mauer will make it, too. I'll say Helton gets in while Wagner gets within just a few percentage points, maybe even within 1%. Sheffield will fall short while Jones and Beltrán pave the way for enshrinement within the next few years. 

That means the 2024 Hall of Fame class will be as follows, and I'll predict their percentages in parentheses: 

  • Adrián Beltré (97.6)
  • Joe Mauer (79.9)
  • Todd Helton (75.1)
  • Jim Leyland

Penguins coach Mike Sullivan to be inducted into Men’s Beanpot Hall of Fame

Long before he won two Stanley Cups as coach of the Penguins, Mike Sullivan went to four straight Beanpot finals, winning two championships.

Boston University alum Mike Sullivan will be the 2024 inductee into the Men’s Beanpot Hall of Fame. The announcement came at Monday’s Men’s Beanpot luncheon.

Sullivan won two Beanpots with the Terriers in 1987 and 1990, putting up four goals and nine assists in eight games as BU reached the championship game in each of his four years. He finished his career at BU with 61 goals and 77 assists, and served as the captain of the 1989-90 squad that went on to reach the Frozen Four.

“To be selected to go into the Beanpot Hall of Fame is an incredible honor, especially when you consider the caliber of players that have played,” said Sullivan, who is in his ninth season as head coach of the NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins. “The camaraderie around that tournament is forever etched in my memory.

“It meant a lot to my family, friends, and extended family growing up in the Boston area. I remember having 30-plus people in my family going to watch the games.

“To be able to win it twice and own the bragging rights of the best college team in Boston was a ton of fun. Sharing that celebration on campus is something that I cherish to this very day.”

The Marshfield native played four seasons at BU before going on to play 709 games in an 11-year career in the NHL with four teams, including a stint with the Bruins for the 1997-98 season. After his playing days were over, he made the move behind the bench, serving as head coach for the Bruins for two years in 2003-04 and 2005-06. He led the Penguins to Stanley Cups titles in 2016 and 2017.

The induction ceremony for Sullivan will be held on Feb. 12 prior to the men’s championship game. He will be the 19th Terrier to be inducted into the tournament’s Hall of Fame.

“Mike is incredibly deserving of this honor,” said former BU coach Jack Parker. “Not only was Mike a great hockey player, but he was, and still is, a tremendous person and leader. I was lucky to coach someone like him at BU and I’m really happy he’s being recognized as a Beanpot Hall of Famer.”

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) — Todd Helton and Joe Mauer will become just the sixth pair of players inducted together into the Hall of Fame after spending their big league careers with one organization.

“A lot of things had to go right,” Helton said Thursday during a news conference in the Hall’s plaque gallery alongside Mauer and fellow electee Adrián Beltré. “Obviously contract and money plays into all of that. … You bite your tongue a little bit and you go out and you play hard every day. You try to make the team better and you lead, and if they want you there, great. … I am so happy that I got to play my whole career in Colorado, where I love the town and I love the people.”

There are no decisions for the Hall to make about the caps on the plaques of Helton, who spent 17 seasons with the Rockies, and Mauer, who played 15 seasons for the Minnesota Twins. The Hall will have to decide what to do for Beltré after a career that included eight years with the Texas Rangers, seven with the Los Angeles Dodgers, five with the Seattle Mariners and one with the Boston Red Sox.

The Hall has made the cap decisions since ahead of the 2002 induction.

Just 58 of 273 players elected to the Hall spent their entire career with one team. The only prior single-team duos inducted together were Mickey Mantle and Whitey Ford (1974), Johnny Bench and Carl Yastrzemski (1989), George Brett and Robin Yount (1999), Tony Gwynn and Cal Ripken Jr. (2007), and Mariano Rivera and Edgar Martinez (2019).

Helton was nearly traded to the Red Sox in 2007, the same year he helped Colorado reach the World Series against Boston.

“From my understanding, it was a done deal and Keli McGregor, who was our team president at the time, vetoed it at the last second,” Helton said. “And I am glad he did. Going to the World Series with Colorado meant more than winning it with somebody else.”

Mauer grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota, and was drafted first overall by his hometown team in 2001.

“I always felt that we had a chance to win there,” said Mauer, the 2009 AL MVP and a three-time AL batting champion. “Every day I would go in, along with my teammates and try to do that, to be the best version of myself. ... It’s a special place, a special community and I am happy to be a part of it.”

Mauer stood behind the dais holding 5-year-old son Chip and admiring tributes to the initial Hall class of Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson, Christy Mathewson, Honus Wagner and Babe Ruth.

“One of his favorite movies right now is ‘Sandlot’ and they talk about The Great Bambino,” Mauer said. “I am excited for myself to learn even more history about the game, but to also have him learn more about the great players before me and it starts with that first class right there, so it’s pretty special.”

Beltré (95.1%) and Mauer (76.1%) were elected Tuesday by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America in their initial ballot appearances and Helton (79.7%) was voted in on the sixth try, receiving four more votes than needed for the 75% threshold. They will be inducted July 21 along with former major league manager Jim Leyland, who was elected last month by the contemporary baseball era committee.

“Every corner here is impressive, but the one that I was glad to see and shocked to see was Juan Marichal,” Beltré said of the plaques. “Being a little kid from the Dominican, that was the first big name that I heard in baseball and the first big leaguer that I thought was like a god to us in the Dominican. Everything you heard was about Juan Marichal growing up and I remember every kid trying to equal his famous leg kick.”

Beltré became the fifth Dominican elected after Marichal, Pedro Martínez, Vladimir Guerrero and David Ortiz.

“There is big pride,” Beltré said. “I know there are going to be a lot coming, especially with (Albert) Pujols coming soon.”

Beltré credited former big league manager Felipe Alou, a family friend, and scouts Ralph Avila and Pablo Peguero for his being able to sign with the Dodgers as a 15-year-old in 1994.

“They were the men that gave me a chance to become a baseball player,” Beltré said. “They believed in me, they signed me at 15 years old and they saw something in me that I didn’t believe at the time.”

Helton will join former Rockies teammate Larry Walker in the Hall. Helton was nervous meeting the Hall of Famer Brett, but is eager to spend time with him, Mike Schmidt and other members this summer.

“I looked up to those guys,” Helton said. “They were like my heroes. I am looking forward to golfing with them, hanging with them and being part of the family.”

Five UConn School of Business alumni, who have excelled in fields as diverse as college basketball, power-tool manufacturing, and complex financial services, will be inducted into the School of Business Hall of Fame this spring.

The Hall of Fame, the School’s signature event, will begin at 6 p.m. April 26 at the Hartford Marriott Downtown. Tickets are $175 each. The formal event is black-tie optional. For additional information or reservations, please visit alumni.business.uconn.edu.

Dean John A. Elliott says this year’s inductees are not only impressive in their professional accomplishments but also particularly engaged with the School of Business.

“These outstanding alumni exemplify our history, hard work, and traditions. They have excelled in an array of industries and activities,’’ he says. “Their accomplishments remind us of the great foundation our business school provides for diverse endeavors.’’

The inductees are:

Antonietta ‘Toni’ Boucher ’02 MBA is a former Fortune 500-company executive, the co-founder of several startups, a leader who devoted 22 years of service in the state legislature, and an avid philanthropist. Today, Boucher is the first selectman in Wilton and is currently writing four books.

Boucher earned an MBA in international marketing from UConn in 2002. She is the former director of Commonfund, one of the nation’s leading non-profit asset management companies. She has also held executive positions with Fortune 500 companies, spearheading new business development, managing billion-dollar budgets, and leading teams with hundreds of employees. She has also co-founded several startups.

Boucher dedicated 22 years of service in the Connecticut General Assembly, including 10 years as the Chief Deputy Leader in the Connecticut State Senate. Her expertise included tax policy, finance, transportation, and education.

A passionate philanthropist, Boucher’s $8 million naming gift to the UConn School of Business created the Boucher Management & Entrepreneurship Department. The gift is a tribute to her late husband Henry “Bud” Boucher, and reflects the couple’s passion for entrepreneurship, opportunity, and investment in the state’s economic growth. The Bouchers have also supported student scholarships and faculty fellowships at UConn.

In addition to her interest in business, government, and education, Boucher is a strong supporter of research, technology, bioscience, and conservation. She serves on the board of numerous organizations in southwest Connecticut.

Jamelle Elliott ’96 (BUS), ’97 MS (EDU) is an assistant coach for the UConn Women’s Basketball team and helped lead the Huskies to five national championships.

Portrait photo of Jamelle Elliott.

A standout athlete during her student years (1992-96), Elliott helped build the UConn basketball dynasty. As a junior, she was an integral part of an undefeated Huskies team that won the 1995 NCAA National Championship over the Tennessee Lady Vols. She became only the second player in school history to pass the 1,000-point and 1,000-rebound milestones. Elliott never missed a game or a practice during her four-year college basketball career.

Head coach Geno Auriemma has said of his former player: “I’ve coached a lot of bright players, but Jamelle is the smartest and the toughest.’’ At less than 6-feet tall, Elliott considered herself “undersized’’ as a basketball player but made up for it with strength, determination, and a competitive spirit.

Elliott is a two-time Husky, earning a bachelor’s degree in business administration in 1996 and a master’s degree in sports management in 1997. She became an assistant coach at UConn for 12 seasons (1998 to 2009), playing an instrumental role in the 2000, 2002-2004 and 2009 team championships.

She then became head coach at the University of Cincinnati, leading the Bearcats women’s basketball team, from 2009 to 2018, and guiding the team to the WNIT playoffs. Under her supervision, every student-athlete who completed their eligibility during her tenure earned her degree.

In addition, Elliott had the opportunity to serve on Coach Auriemma’s staff for the gold medal-winning USA women’s basketball team in the 2016 Olympic Games.

Elliott returned to UConn in 2018 as associate athletic director for The National C Club – which helps UConn student-athletes to find mentoring, internships and jobs through a network of alumni UConn athletes. She returned to coaching in 2020. “I’ve lived a life that other people dream about,’’ she has said.

Mary Jane Fortin ’86 (BUS) is an experienced business leader, holding executive leadership roles with some of the largest and most complex financial services companies in the industry.

Fortin was the President and Chief Commercial Officer of Thrivent, a Fortune 500 financial services company, where she was responsible for growing the organization’s insurance and wealth-management businesses.

Prior to joining Thrivent, Fortin was president of Allstate’s financial businesses and led the company’s life, annuity, and benefits businesses, generating $6 billion of revenue. She served as a member of Allstate’s Operating Committee and during her tenure led $2 billion of strategic acquisitions for the company. From 2006 to 2015, she held leadership positions at AIG, and played a significant role in the company’s restructuring efforts.

Fortin, who studied accounting, graduated magna cum laude from the School of Business in 1986, with a bachelor’s degree in business. She earned an MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, and is a certified public accountant.

Fortin is a member of the Dean’s Advisory Cabinet at UConn School of Business. She has been active in financial industry associations, including serving as vice chair of LL Global Inc. and on the board of the American Council of Life Insurers.

She has been a trustee of the United Way of Metro Chicago and of Greater Houston and has served on the board of SEARCH, a Houston-based organization focused on ending homelessness.

Lee B. McChesney ’94 (BUS) is the senior vice president and CFO of MSA Safety, a global leader in the development, manufacture, and supply of safety products for people and facilities. MSA Safety products integrate a combination of electronics, mechanical systems, and advanced materials to protect against hazardous or life-threatening situations, most often in the oil, gas and petrochemical, fire service, construction and mining industries, and in the military.

McChesney held senior finance and business leadership positions at United Technologies and at Stanley Black & Decker. At Stanley Black & Decker, he was the CFO of the Security and Tools business units, which included DeWalt, Stanley, Craftsman and Black & Decker brands. He also played a key role in the merger of The Stanley Works and Black & Decker, and the acquisition of both the Craftsman and Newell tool businesses.

McChesney graduated magna cum laude from the School of Business in 1994, with a major in finance. He was the recipient of the School’s Finance Outstanding Performance Award. He later earned an MBA from the University of Massachusetts.

He serves on the School of Business Dean’s Advisory Cabinet and on the board of Junior Achievement of Central Maryland. In the workplace, he has been a long-time advocate for underrepresented employees.

Randy Siller ’79 (BUS) is a co-founder and managing partner of Siller & Cohen Family Wealth Advisors, a nationally recognized firm that manages over $1 billion in investments and another $1 billion in life insurance.

He has created the Siller Family Leadership Scholarship which annually provides a student a cost-of-attendance scholarship, in addition to a scholarship in the Neag School of Education, in honor of his father, Bernard, who was an educator.
