There are many players from the past that have been overlooked as far as the hall of fame is concerned. Who do you think are some charter members of the "should be" hall of fame club?

Well, if nobody's going to respond to this, then I'm just going to put in there who I feel should be in the hall of fame. First of all Jim Rice. Jim Rice hit 382 home runs, drove in 1451 RBIs, and batted .298 in his career. He also had 2452 hits. His numbers easily surpass many Hall of Famers.

Secondly, I believe that "The Hawk" Andre Dawson should be in the Hall of Fame. Andre Dawson hit 438 home runs, drove in 1591 RBIs, and batted .279. He also accumulated 2774 hits. In my opinion, enough to get into the hall of fame.

Never mind about nobody responding to that I wrote it when nobody had responded yet.

Ted kluszewki is not in the Hall of Fame and I don't belive he should be.

I agree with you though that Don Newcombe belongs in the hall of fame. Newk was a tremendous pitcher

kluszewski shud be there if dizzy dean and ralph kiner are there...they all had shortenned careers because of injuries/war

And by the way, I also don't belive that Goose Gossage belongs in the Hall of Fame. He was a relief pitcher, and in my opinion specialists don't deserve to be in the Hall of Fame. That is unless they were so incredibly dominant that they stood out past everybody, and Goose Gossage just didn't do that.

what if your a specialist who gave up a historic home run to a guy with two bad knees

Ralph Kiner was much better than Ted kluszewski. Kiner played in 5 less seasons and hit exactly 90 more home runs than kluszewski, and in 5 less seasons drove in 1015 RBIs, only 13 less than kluszewski.

First of all that was in the post-season and does (should) not have a bearing on your Hall of Fame status. And Eckersely was a stand-out.

dizzy dean won less than 200 games and kevin brown has win more than 200 I dont think those are HOF #'s but he should be a hall of famer because of his famous seasons as well should ted kluszewski for his famous seasons

Few people know of him, because he played in the Japanese Leagues, which is why he won't get in. I downladed the HR Derby between him and Aaron, and it was pretty cool.

kluszewski had one really famous season in 1954 where he hit 49 home runs. The guy never hit 50. I don't consider that to be a feat worthy of the Hall of Fame.

53 and 55 great seasons also....aaron and mays neveer hit 50 whats so great about 50

What's so great about 50 is that it is a STANDOUT. Willie Mays hit 660 home runs and Aaron hit 755. They didn't need to hit 50 home runs in one season to be a standout. A player like Kluszewski needs to hit 50 homers to standout. 50 home runs was A LOT back then, in case you forgot.

You do have a point in saying that, because now everybody think's everybody's a hall of famer, just because of one thing or another. It used to be that the hall of fame was for the elites, but that isn't so true anymore, as can clearly be seen with some of the inductees.
