Murray Chass has a good though slight article on the Hall-of-Fame voting by the Vets' Committee, the resultf of which will be announced today. Chass reports that Marvin Miller may have some strong support. It is encouraging given his importance to the game in the last 35 years. And I guess it makes sense given that "younger" veterans are now involved. When Miller first headed up the players' union, Teddy Ballgame, the man who had the most pull in the old Vets' Committee, was a retiree and then a representative of management.
Chass also has a good assessment of how Torre's managerial career may help him even though it's still active and therefore, not supposed to be part of the review.
I guess I would put Miller, Santo, Herzog, and Minoso in. There are a lot of 'tweeners in that group, and who knows about the execs and the ump? I guess Hodges is expected to garner the votes he needs. It will be interesting.
