Patriots Insider: Tom Brady Hall of Fame Induction Could Resemble ‘Larry Bird Night’

The New England Patriots are pulling out all the stops for Tom Brady’s induction into their Hall of Fame.

 

Mike Reiss of ESPN reported the Patriots are attempting to make the event as big as possible, comparing it to the Boston Celtics’ “Larry Bird Night” in February 1993.

 

The Patriots will hold Brady’s induction June 12, with Gillette Stadium playing host for a Hall of Fame induction for the first time. Patriots owner Robert Kraft waived the four-year period players typically have to wait to be inducted last year.

 

Season-ticket holders will have the first chance to grab tickets to the event starting next week, with a presale lasting until April 12. The general public will have an opportunity to buy tickets if any remain later in April.

 

Brady played 20 of his 23 NFL seasons with the Patriots, establishing himself as the greatest quarterback in league history. He won six Super Bowls, four Super Bowl MVPs and three regular-season MVPs in New England while becoming the NFL’s all-time leader in passing yards and touchdowns.

 

While Brady ended his career with a three-year stint with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, adding one more ring and another Super Bowl MVP in the process, he’ll be forever remembered as a Patriot first and foremost.

 

Expect no expense spared by the Patriots in honoring one of the greatest athletes in the history of professional sports.
