Just over 300 are in MLB’s most exclusive fraternity: Baseball HOF. Who are the best each year, though? Call to the Pen takes a crack at just that.
Well, this is kind of a daunting task, isn’t it? I may more so be asking myself that than any out there reading this, actually. After all, how does one put a list like this together on such a subjective topic? 335 have been given the esteemed honor over the years of being enshrined in
Cooperstown’s hallowed halls, deemed by the media and their peers to be among the very best to step on the diamond. Sluggers and strikeout kings, .400 hitters and dominant bullpen stoppers to those behind the scenes and in the dugout, they’re all represented in one common fraternity: members of the baseball HOF.
Therefore, in this series of articles over the course of the near future, I will be going back in time, year by year, starting in 2019 and going all the way back to 1936 and finding out who can be considered the best of their class. So, no better place to start than the present.
