Baseball Hall of Fame "The snubbed players"

Baseball Hall of Fame "The snubbed players" This page honors great ballplayers from America's favorite pastime.. the ones that get less or no respect from the BBWAA or Vet's Committee!!
(1)

This is a page to discuss and induct players into a Baseball Hall of Fame in the south, that knows that these here players belong in the Hall of Fame & Museum up north in Cooperstown, NY!!! Some of these players have been snubbed for way too long, and deserve some reckoning. I have based the headquarters in Americus, GA, for one reason, This is where Joe Jackson first ran out of his cletes in a minor league baseball game, garnering him the nickname "Shoeless Joe"...

"The Murph" - Atlanta Braves

2x MVP, 4x Silver Slugger, 5x Gold Gloves, 7x All-Star, 350 doubles, 398 HRs, 2111 Hits, and the most total bases of any MLB player during the 1980's!!! He sure does belong in the HOF and probably has better stats than a quarter of the inductees in there!
