One of the better jobs the Vets Committee (in whatever form) has ever done.
I’m certainly a fan of the vote
A baseball friend of mine wrote a thoughtful piece on Kaat. He was one of his favorite players. I learned a lot reading the post. I hope the link works…
I love this! Thanks for sharing. I certainly learned some things as well!
It would have been nice–no, damnit, the decent and human thing to do– if they had inducted O’Neil when he was still here to enjoy the honor.
