This day in baseball

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.
