Who was the last Sox player to make it to the HOF during the initial round of eligibility and entered wearing a White Sox cap? Fisk made it to the HOF, but entered as a Red Sox. Nellie Fox was elected in 1997 by the veterans committee many years after his initial window of eligibilty.

Maybe it was Luis Aparicio who was elected in 1984 and played for the Sox from 1956-62, 68-70.

Congrats Big Hurt.
You are the reason why I am a Sox fan.

Congrats to Big Hurt! Just as expected, and rightfully so. I feel bad for Biggio, who fell only .2% short. Have always waited for the day to hear my favorite Sox player inducted into the HOF.

First White Sox to make it on the first ballot. Pretty great.

I've been getting canker sores all my life and it has never occurred to me that sticking out my tongue would provide any relief...

Yes!

In the past I never understood why fans got so worked up about one of their players making it to the hall. Having grown up as a Sox fan during Frank's heyday... now I understand. Feel so happy for him and the White Sox "family" today.
