One (or More) of These Players Could Be Voted into Baseball's Hall of Fame
I will explain my month-long absence in another post on another day. But as today is HOF day, I thought I'd at least try to make an appearance. When the announcement is made at 05:00 PM CST on Wednesday, January 18, 2016, to let the world know who has been ...
