Re: Dave Concepcion VS. Ozzie Smith
I always thought that Concepcion was a marginal HOF candidate in the same vien as Tony Perez.
Perez has gotten in, and Davey hasn't even been close. It's clear that, according to the voters, I overvalued Concepcion.
I'm still a little surprised with how badly he has fared in HOF voting. He alway hit very well for a SS (for his time), and was a perennial gold glove winner. He played in the WS three times, and invented the "hop" throw from the hole in SS for use on artificial turf.
