Forbes Magazine
This boffo book for baseball buffs makes oft-convincing cases for why 115 players (the number discussed) should be elected to join the national pastime's heroes already immortalized in Cooperstown: "The National Baseball Hall of Fame has become the official conferrer of baseball immortality. Until the recent media revolution, nobody outside of hardcore baseball fans talked much about Cooperstown. That's all changed in the past two decades."(26 Apr 2004)
