Minoso on HOF Ballot (http://mlb.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/mlb/news/mlb_news.jsp?ymd=20021212&content_id=185157&vkey=news_mlb&fext=.jsp)

I don't think he'll garner too much support to make the Hall, but he probably is as deserving as Larry Doby and Monte Irvin who put up similar numbers during shortened careers due to MLB barring black players......and they're in the HOF.

Billy Pierce didn't make the cut which is very unfortunate because there are pitchers who didn't win as many games as Pierce did (Drysdale, Dizzy Dean) and yet they are in the HOF.
