The Veterans’ Committee is looking at a list of people, with a winner to be announced December 3rd for induction into the Hall of Fame.
The list includes Bill Dahlen, Wes Farrell, Marty Marion (1944 NL MVP, but a war year; his .263 b.a. that year is the lowest by any MVP that was a position player), Tony Mullane, Bucky Walters, Deacon White, Sam Breadon, Hank O’Day, Al Reach and Jacob Ruppert.
Frankly, I find it quite shocking that the man who built the original Yankee Stadium, who brought Babe Ruth to NY, and who built the Yankee dynasty, isn’t in the Hall of Fame yet.
Ruppert for the Hall. It is WAY overdue.
