This day in baseballPosted: January 21, 2014
The year 1971 turned out to be a rough one for Baseball Hall of Fame candidates. That year, no player received the necessary three-fourths of the votes to be elected into the Hall. The two players who came closest were Yogi Berra (with 67.2% of the votes) and Early Wynn (66.7%). Both players would be elected into the Hall of Fame the following season.
