1/15/10 Welcome to the club

Andre Dawson received the loudest and longest ovation during opening ceremonies at the Cubs Convention on Friday at the Chicago Hilton. Dawson was recently elected into the baseball Hall of Fame, and even though it hasn’t been determined which cap he’ll wear in Cooperstown, the Cubs fans saluted him. Ernie Banks, Billy Williams, Fergie Jenkins and Ryne Sandberg also are attending the Cubs Convention.

Jenkins was asked if he taught Dawson the secret Hall of Fame handshake.

“No,” Jenkins said, laughing. “I just asked him, ‘What took you so long?'”
