Cooperstown: Hall of Fame Players

By Dan Schlossberg, Paul Adomites, David Nemec & Matthew

Induction into the Hall of Fame is the greatest
accolade a baseball player can receive. Of the
thousands of big-leaguers who have suited up
since 1869, only about two percent of them have
made it to the hollowed halls. Babe Ruth, Buck
Leonard, Nolan Ryan, and Martin Dihigo are
among the legends - and lesser-knowns - who
have been voted in. Cooperstown: Hall of Fame
Players profiles the greatest players, managers,
and contributors who have been enshrined in the
Hall of Fame. Captivating stories and
photographs - as well as photos of plaques and
memorabilia - bring the Cooperstown experience
to life.
