DateQuestionAnswer
2008-09-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'll be honest, I had no idea there was a ten year minimum for HOF induction until just recently. Has there ever been a player where this was an issue, by that I mean has there ever been a player whose career warrents at least a look from the HOF but who didn't qualify. Seems kind of arbitrary and unnecessary to me; if a player's career is great enough to be considered for the HOF based on less than 10 years of numbers than that should be good enough, don't you think. Can you imagine if something happend to Pujols (knocks on wood furiously) and he didn't reach two more seasons. He obviously already belongs, why should an arbitrary year total matter?
(blaseta from Calgary)
There's precedent for surmounting the rule in the case of catastrophe. Addie Joss, who died of meningitis at age 30 after nine seasons in the majors, finally gained admission via the Vet Committee in 1978 thanks to an extended campaign by Fred Lieb, among others. Somebody would almost certainly have Phat Albert's back in case of the unthinkable. (Jay Jaffe)
