Brilliance is often discovered by accident, and so it was with Peter Gammons. Gammons, inducted into the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association Hall of Fame in Salisbury on Monday night, didn't leave his New England prep school for UNC determined to create journalistic waves. Gammons owes his Baseball Hall of Fame membership to one night at a Chapel Hill bar known as the Tempo Room. (Salisbury Post)
