All 10 Baseball Hall Veteran Candidates Fall Short
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — For the second straight year, a baseball veterans committee has failed to elect to the Hall of Fame any of the 10 candidates up for consideration.
The Pre-Integration Era Committee weighed the merits of players and executives who made their marks on the game through 1946. The committee announced its decision Monday at the winter meetings.
Last year, the Golden Era committee failed to elect any of its candidates up for election. The Expansion Era committee (1973 and later) votes again at the 2016 winter meetings in Washington, D.C.
This was the second time the Pre-Integration Committee has met. Former New York Yankees owner Jacob Ruppert, umpire Hank O'Day and barehanded catcher Deacon White were elected in 2012.
