Superb storytelling. A great gift
from a great friend. Thanks, Judy!

The Baseball Hall of Fame results brought me more questions than answers.

I received amazing notes in past years from old-timers like Enos Slaughter or Doug Harvey, men touched that their Hall of Fame potential meant something to a fan.
Years ago, it was easy to look at the near-miss names on the ballot. If you wrote them soon after their election letdown, the chances of a response soared.
Newer inductees or “maybe next year” names like Mike Piazza? Good luck.
