This whole thing about punishing an era is ridiculous. It happened. We saw these guys put up monster numbers. And for Bud Selig, the owners, and the HOF not to give voters some kind of guidance on how to treat this era is equally ridiculous.
But ya I'm gonna make the trip to Cooperstown to see that Jim Rice plaque. What a joke the baseball HOF is
Don't forget to stop by Phil Rizutto's bust. Those 1588 career hits are great for a laugh. Who knew the HOF had such a great sense of humor?
Here are the similar players to Rizutto according to basball-refernce:
- Art Fletcher
- Billy Rogell
- Billy Jurges
- Claude Ritchey
- Lonny Frey
- Marty Marion
- Doggie Miller
- Lyn Lary
- Jose Offerman
- Hughie Critz
Household names galore! I bet Jose Offerman doesn't even know that he is HOF caliber.
