Robin Ventura was always one of my favorite White Six players and I am glad he is one of the initial inductees. I wish Dave Magadan would have made it but hopefully he will within a few years.

I hope Lou Gehrig, former White Sox pitcher Ted Lyons and former Crimson Tide star Joe Sewell make it during the pre 1947 balloting.

Congrats Robin! Didn't he say something last year to the effect that he will always consider himself a White Sox?

Congratulations Robin! He is the one the Sox should have went after to do color for Sox Radio.

Is there a place you can look up his college stats?

I don't know anything about college baseball. I just heard he was good.

I believe he still has the longest consecutive game hitting streak in college baseball.

Congrats Robin!:gulp:

This is true. I read an article in the Daily Herald yesterday about Ventura's induction and the tidbit about his hitting streak being the longest in college baseball history was included.

Congrats to my favorite baseball player and the Sox who initiated my love for this team and the game of baseball!:smile:

In he minor leagues, Joe Hauser hit 69 home runs for Minneapolis in 1938, Bob Cruse hit 69 home runs for in 1948 and Joe Bauman hit 72 home runs for Roswell in 1954. None of that diminished what Babe Ruth did in hitting 60 home runs in the American League.

Ventura in the College Baseball Hall of Fame is a no-brainer.
