Foley’s opens Irish Hall of Fame voting up to the fans


Last year, Foley’s, the excellent sports bar with a huge autographed baseball collection on 33rd St. between 5th and 6th Aves., unveiled its Irish Baseball Hall of Fame. While Yankee great announcer John Flaherty earned an induction into the first class, the bar fielded numerous complaints from fans who wanted to get involved.

All of those fans who got so defensive over LaTroy Hawkins’ number flap last year should do the same.
