Thome was inducted Sunday during a ceremony along with Chipper Jones, Vladimir Guerrero, Trevor Hoffman, Jack Morris, and Alan Trammell.  Thome made the Hall on the first ballot, with over 90 percent of voters supporting him.

Thome said, "this is the ultimate dream come true.  I can't believe this is happening."
