ESPN reports that no one gained admittance to the Hall in this year's Veterans' Committee vote.
According to the source, former Brooklyn Dodgers first baseman Gil Hodges came the closest to election, falling 11 votes shy. Former umpire Doug Harvey was next, getting within 18 votes of election.
It seems that the new system may not be able to concentrate its attention on the large field of candidates. Perhaps, next time they will narrow the field a bit more (say 25 men) to let the voters focus on fewer, better-qualified candidates. The Hall faced this isssue in the early days when there were too many qualified candidates available. That's what caused the ill-conceived Vets' Committee in the first place.
We've come full circle, grasshopper. It's another tied-All-Star-game-like black eye for the sports' showcase.
