    Six fairly good but far from great players from long long ago put in the HOF. Why didn't the Baseball Writers Association of America vote them in when they had the chance a half century ago.?? Well - they weren't good enough then but now they are!!! This is all part of the american war on merit waged by the democrat party.
    Everyone is a winner and that means no one is.


    dec 6 2021 The National Baseball Hall of Fame will induct at least six new members in 2022. Sunday evening the Hall of Fame's Early Baseball Era Committee announced Negro League legends Bud Fowler and Buck O'Neil have been voted into Cooperstown. Also
    voted in were Gil Hodges, Jim Kaat, Minnie MiƱoso, and Tony Oliva by the Golden Days Era Committee.

    Simply put, O'Neil is a Negro Leagues icon and one of the most important figures in baseball history. A fine player who went to three All-Star Games in 10 Negro League seasons, O'Neil founded the Negro League Baseball Hall of Fame in Kansas City
    following his playing days, and he was also the first Black coach in baseball history.

    Hodges, an eight-time All-Star and manager of the 1969 Miracle Mets, was long considered one of the most worthy candidates not yet voted into the Hall of Fame. He played 18 seasons with the Dodgers and Mets, including 17 after returning from World War II,
    and retired as a career .273/.359/.487 hitter with 1,921 hits and 370 home runs. He was also considered one of the best defensive infielders of his era. Hodges died at age 47 in 1972.
