"Everything worthwhile in life is worth a price. Some people give their bodies to science. I give mine to baseball."
--Ron Hunt, shortly after setting the hit-by-pitch record in 1971

Share Your Memories!

Our sites have always been by you and about you. If you check our TV Forums or our Technology & Science forums, you'll find literally thousands of messages from fans of 1970s TV shows, survivors of hurricanes or aircraft accidents, etc. from all over the world sharing their memories, asking questions, making comments. Our baseball section is new, but don't let that stop you from sharing your memories of the first game you went to, your favorite player, a now-forgotten stadium, etc. Of course you can also ask questions, post trivia, tell the world what you think of Barry Bonds, or just read what others are saying.

--Patrick Mondout



Al Oliver's 2743 hits put him 47th in MLB history. No other eligible hitters in the top 50 have ever been eliminated from the ballot after just one year and only Vada Pinson and Andre Dawson had more hits, are eligible, and aren't in (as of 3/30/06). Perhaps he isn't a Hall of Famer, but he deserved more support than he received.
