      Gehrig is inner circle. Also yes to Sisler and Terry. Bottomley is gray area. Kelly was a clear crony pick. Pipp was good.

            Gehrig, Sisler, Terry. Bottomley is HOVG. Fournier is probably best of the rest.

              For the sake of accuracy, I've changed it from "Kelly" to "Kell."

              I went with Gehrig, Sisler, Terry, and Fournier. Imho, both Bottomley and Kelly are such generous Cooperstown inclusions they're not even in my own personal hall. Judge gets an honorable mention as well.

              Coincidence of the day: Earl Sheely died on this date in 1952.

              Put it in the books.

                      Kelly was correct; George "High Pockets" Kelly was a slugging first baseman with a slick glove in the 1920s AL

                      George Kell was a third baseman in the 1940s and 1950s with a good glove who won two AL batting titles.

                      They are both much-maligned HOF selections, but they're different guys.

                        Ignore my vote for George Kell(y) because I was basing off the wrong guy.

                          Oh my, my bad. I've changed it back, and my apologies for any confusion it may've caused.

                          Heh, oddly enough, my thought on his inclusion in upstate NY still stands. ...even more so.
                          Put it in the books.

                              Fournier could fit in the Hall as a solid choice not inner level but solid.
