VIDEO: Barry Larkin Cries During Hall Of Fame Induction Speech

Tears welled up in the eyes of Barry Larkin as he thanked those who helped him along in his career during his 2012 Hall of Fame induction speech Sunday. The former great with the Cincinnati Reds was the only player selected by Hall of Fame voters for this year's class. He played 19 seasons, helping the Reds to a World Series title in 1990 and winning NL MVP honors in 1995 before retiring following the 2004 season.
