Hall of Fame Induction

On September 10, 2010 Patrick received the honor of being inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame at Freed-Hardeman University. Patrick attended F-HU from 1996-1998. He set many records while there--quite a few of which he still holds. Some of these records include: single-season batting average, on-base percentage,and doubles and extra base hits. While at F-HU, Patrick was a two-time all-conference and all-regional selection. In 1998, he was named an NAIA All-American and the Tennessee Small College Player
of the Year.

Patrick was inducted into the Hall of Fame alongside his coach while at F-HU, Chuck Box. It was a very memorable night. Patrick gave a great speech. Some of his teammates during his F-HU career were there to congratulate him. Freed-Hardeman is where Patrick and I met. So this was a special night for me to see him lifted up among his peers that I knew, as well. I was so proud to be there and that Liam was part of such a special night for Patrick.
