Half-Baked Hall: 1962

To no surprise, Joe Morgan and Jim Palmer breeze in with 100% of the vote and Amos Otis and Ken Singleton breeze out with 0% of the vote.

1962

Richie Ashburn

That's it. The next best player that retired in 1962 was former Senator Eddie "The Walkin' Man" Yost. I love his player page, but he ain't getting votes.

I'd also like to mention a pitcher with a Top 10 nickname in Vinegar Bend Mizell

Should Richie Ashburn make our hallowed halls?

  • Yes (81%, 13 Votes)
  • No (19%, 3 Votes)
