Stupid Reasons To Vote Against Bert Blyleven, #632
Bill Ballou's remark is awesome in its thoroughgoing stupidity:
“Why not Blyleven? I don’t vote for many people, in general, for the Hall of Fame, and it comes down to something that happened in 1959 when I was 7. My dad took me to a Red Sox game specifically so I could tell my kids I saw Ted Williams play, and for me, that’s the definition of a Hall of Fame player. And as good as he was, Blyleven does not pass that particular test.”So, unless your dad took you to the ballpark to experience a player, he shouldn't be in Cooperstown?
