Stupefying. Embarrassing. Inexcusable.
The greatest baseball player ever has been inducted into the Hall of Fame. He did not get in with unanimous voting. Why? I don't know. Check out this ESPN article. Here's a few lines of it:
"I keep looking at the numbers that just rolled in from Hall of Fame Election Central.
They can't be right.
Unless my calculator's busted, those numbers are telling me that 28 voters cast ballots that did not include the name of Rickey Henderson.
What the heck? Did I really just say 28?
Stupefying. Embarrassing. Inexcusable."
Rickey has been my favorite baseball player since about 1989.
Oh, and the picture is from when he was recently one of the coaches for the Mets.
