MY BIG CONCERNS ABOUT AMERICA:

Internally- We spend too much time assuring our rights without learning the responsibilities that should accompany them.
Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.

The 5 year rule was made in 1954 so it would have to be someone inducted before that.

Yes. The four were Ruth, Gerhig, DiMaggio and Clemente. DiMaggio last played in 1951 and was inducted in 1955.

Gerhig and Clemente were both inducted due to their special circumstances and Ruth was inducted in its inaugural vote long before any precedents were formed making Joe DiMaggio the only HOFer to be voted in before five years without special circumstances (depending how you view Ruthís).

I think you were right the 1st time Carl Hubbell last pitched in 1943 and was inducted in 1947, making the total 5.

You are correct. I knew there was a fifth when I wrote it but then second guessed myself and didnít look it up. Man Iím getting old. Sometimes I canít even remember what I was about to
