    New Hall of Famers

    The vote for Joe is on January 8th but here's the newest electees:

    Managers Billy Southworth and Dick Williams are joined by executives Barney Dreyfuss, Bowie Kuhn and Walter O'Malley as Veterans Committee selections for the class of 2008. The five electees, along with any electee(s) to emerge from the Baseball Writers' Association of America vote on January 8, will be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame on Sunday, July 27, 2008, as part of Cooperstown's annual Hall of Fame Weekend. Williams is the only living electee.

    The whole story here:

    If Joe gets in, that will make 5 enshrinees who are no longer with us. Not sure who the writers will elect, but I'd guess that most will still be living.

    A question for our baseball historians: has there ever been a higher number of deceased enshrinees in one year?
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.
