Mills reflects on Hall of Famers Larkin, Santo
PHOENIX -- The induction of Ron Santo and Barry Larkin into the National Baseball Hall of Fame was shown on the video board above center field at Chase Field on Sunday morning, sparking conversations about the newest inductees into Cooperstown inside the Astros' dugout.

"The one thing about Barry Larkin that I can remember is that he could do everything," Astros manager Brad Mills said. "He could hit for power. He hit for average and he could play a great shortstop. He stole bases. He was a special player and a Hall of Famer because of it. He could beat you in number of ways." Mills also followed Santo's career.

"He was quite a competitor," the manager said. "Everyone that talks about him talks about how big of a competitor he was."
