  • Will Richie 'Dick' Allen finally get his due (Hall Of Fame Status) this december?

    3/8/2020: Today is Phillies star 3B/1B Richie 'Dick' Allen's 78th birthday. Will this be his final birthday as a non-Hall Of Famer?
    His Veterans Committee Era ('Glory Days: 1950-1969') comes up for a vote in December at the Winter Meetings. At his era's last election Allen and Tony Oliva missed election to the HOF by one vote apiece. Both received 11 votes from the 16 man committee, falling one vote shy of the 12 of 16 votes needed (75%). Maury Wills, Minnie Minoso and Jim Kaat also received more than 50% of the vote to miss being elected by only 2 or 3 votes apiece. (I believe that Wills and Kaat each got 10 votes (two votes shy of election) and Minnie Minoso got 9 out of the 16 votes, leaving him three votes shy of election. Minoso died less than 3 months after that election.
