Synopsis

For any baseball fanatic, a trip to Cooperstown can take on the aura of a holy pilgrimage. Yet many fans are unaware of what goes into the selection of players to the Baseball Hall of Fame. This volume offers a chronology of Hall of Fame voting from 1936 to the present; provides information about the awards (Cy Youngs and MVPs won), honors (Sporting News All-Star selections), and other career details (longevity, benchmark statistical achievements) that tend to sway voters; and summarizes the voting trends by position.
