Editorial Reviews

Presented here are 39 men who, if measured by the standards applied to the second-tier players elected--e.g. Pee Wee Reese, Jesse Haines, Rube Marquard--deserve to be in the Hall of Fame. Through an objective analysis of their statistics and importance to their teams or to baseball, the careers of the players, coaches, umpire, and managers included are seen to equal or surpass many of those players already anointed.
