Help us in congratulating the Blyleven Family as our students’ grandfather, Bert Blyleven, was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame on January 5, 2011. The right-handed pitcher won 287 games and ranks fifth all-time in strikeouts – with 3,701 in his career. Mr. Blyleven’s 60 career shutouts are the ninth-most ever! Besides being an AWESOME player, Mr. Blyleven is a fantastic grandfather (to Gracie and Dylan) and mentor to children of all ages. We had the pleasure of meeting him a few summers ago, and the kids throughly enjoyed his visit. We congratulate Mr. Blyleven on all of his lifetime accomplishments!
