  • Two-Team HoFers

    I'm trying to compile a list of HoF players who played for exactly two teams. Thus, I don't know the answer. I was hoping we could do a combined group thing. Contribute as little or as much as you want; it comes down to me not wanting to sift through over 200 names.

    So far I have
    Ty Cobb (DET, PHA)
    Eddie Collins (CHW, PHA)
    Christy Mathewson (NYG, CIN)
    Eppa Rixey (CIN, PHI)
    Honus Wagner (LOU, PIT)
    Harry Heilmann (DET, CIN)
    Willie Mays (NY/SFG, NYM)
    Lou Brock (STL, CHC)
    Billy Williams (CHC, OAK)
    Carlton Fisk (CHW, BOS)
    Sam Crawford (DET, CIN)
    Ozzie Smith (STL, SDP)
    Rod Carew (MIN, CAL)
    Eddie Plank** (PHA, SLB)
    Harry Hooper (BOS, CHW)
    Hank Aaron (MLN/ATL, MIL)
    Frank Baker (PHA, NYY)
    Arky Vaughan (PIT, BRO)
    Lou Boudreau (CLE, BOS)
    Sam Rice (WSH, CLE)
    Yogi Berra (NYY, NYM)
    Harmon Killebrew (WSH/MIN, KCR)
    Catfish Hunter (OAK, NYY)
    Joe Tinker** (CHC, CIN)
    Fred Clarke (LOU, PIT)
    Ron Santo (CHC, CHW)
    Joe Gordon (NYY, CLE)
    Ryne Sandberg (CHC, PHI)
    Monte Irvin (NYG, CHC)
    Mickey Cochrane (PHA,DET)
    Lefty Gomez (NYY, WSH
    Hank Greenberg (DET, PIT)
    Lefty Grove (PHA, BOS)
    Joe Sewell (CLE, NYY)
    Hal Newhouser (DET, CLE)
    Frank Chance (CHC, NYY)
    Ed Walsh (CHW, BSN)
    Frankie Frisch (STL, NYG)
    Gabby Hartnett (CHC, NYG)
    Ray Schalk (CHW, NYG)
    Zack Wheat (BRO, PHA)
    Max Carey (PIT, BRO)
    Jesse Haines (STL, CIN)
    Chick Hafey (STL, CIN)
    Mickey Welch (NYG, TRO)

    Any others you guys can think of? Feel free to add Negro Leaguers.

                      Does Tom Lasorda (BRO, KCA) count?

                        Willis and Klein played for three teams, but I will include Joe Tinker because like Plank he played for two AL/NL teams. FL was more of a circumstance.

                        No since he wasn't inducted as a player

                          What about Sam Thompson? I would think he's a no go but He did play for just two citys.

                            The only 2-team guy elected to the Hall for his MLB playing contributions that hasn't been mentioned is Eppa Rixey (Phillies and Reds). Although you're not counting them, several individuals elected as contributors played for only 2 MLB teams: the aforementioned Tom Lasorda, Bucky Harris (WSH, DET), Miller Huggins (CIN, STL), Branch Rickey (SLB, NYY), George Wright (BOS-NA, BSN, PRO -- only if you either don't count NA or if you consider the NA Boston Red Stockings as the same franchise as the NL Boston Red Caps), and Harry Wright (BOS-NA, BSN -- only if you both count the NA and consider the NA Boston Red Stockings as a different franchise than the NL Boston Red Caps).
