      MY HOF is Selective

      Ty Cobb
      Charlie Gehringer
      Harry Heilmann

      That's it.
      In the 1920's, Harry Heilmann led the AL with a .364 average. In addition, he averaged 220 hits, 45 doubles, 12 triples, 16 homers, 110 runs, and 130 RBI.

        What about Al Kailine?

          No to Kaline, Greenberg, Crawford, Newhouser, etc...

              Sam Crawford, Al Kaline, and even Hank Greenberg don't get the nod? That doesn't sound much like a Hall I'd like to visit anytime soon.

                The HOF should be a host for all-time elite players, not just the possible all stars of their own generation. Hank Greenberg is near elite but, in addition to Lou Gehrig, Jimmy Foxx, and Bill Terry being better 1B than he was during his tenure, his career was too short and closer to Hal Trosky. Just look at Al Kaline's numbers by season. better than average but, only two seasons considered great. Newhouser had 3 great seasons, two during WWII with diminished competition. Finally, I might reconsider Sam Crawford for the HOF who seemed to get better as he got older but, still: Is he an elite player?

                  I once put a tiger in the hall and it ate my neighbor.

                    I disagree - IMO the HOF should be a building where fans of baseball can go and get nostalgic, where fans can enjoy baseball stories and the history of the game. A place where they can get another glimpse of their heroes and get to their dad & grandfathers heroes.

                    To discount all but the "all-time" elites would, in my mind, lessen the experience of visiting the hall. And really, what would a stricter hall induction benefit ? Fans know who the "elite" are, and no doubt Babe Ruth gets his due more than Al Kaline - as it should be.

                    I know there are alot of people who share your viewpoint (as well as mine), and I think a reasonable solution could be just making an "Elite" wing. Would satisfy everyone

                    Guess I'm steering off topic though, sorry. LOL

                    I would leave all current Hall of Famers in, as well as Trammell.

                        Am I missing something here?

                        Is there another HOF somewhere that these two don't reside in?

                          They don't meet his extremely high standards. He likes elite i.e. dominant players. Neither really outshone their competition.

                            I get ya, so in the 10,000 or so players who have stepped foot on a diamond, he would like to see 50 or so in the hall of fame?

                            Kinda like a Church where we worship Gods?

                              It could be worse. He could be too inclusive, and want guys like Dan Petry and Matt Nokes in. Or, if you're a boxing fan following the boxing hall of fame an hour west, Barry McGuigan.
