National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum - Encyclopedia Jr, free information reference for Kids (2637 words)
Among baseball fans, "Hall of Fame" means not only the museum and facility in Cooperstown, but more likely the pantheon of players, managers, umpires and builders who have been named to enshrinement there.
In 2005 the Hall completed a study on African American players between the late 19th century and the integration of the major leagues in 1947, and conducted a special election for such players in February 2006; seventeen figures from the Negro Leagues were chosen in that election, in addition to the eighteen previously selected.
An ongoing controversy facing the Hall of Fame is that of the status of Joe Jackson and Pete Rose.
Ken Davidoff's baseball insider (5441 words)
This marked my second Hall of Fame ballot, as you have to serve 10 years in the Baseball Writers Association of America before you are eligible to vote, and I made some changes from my first ballot.
Members of the Baseball Writers Association of America should not be allowed to determine who gets into the Hall, itshould be the managers, coaches and owners the players against whom the nominees competed.
Members of the BWAA are just a bunch of sanctimoneous, baseball player wannabes who couldn't hit a slow curve much less a high hard one.
