1982 Hall of Fame Results

By Patrick Mondout

Hank Aaron and Frank Robinson were voted into National Baseball Hall of Fame by the writers for 1982. Proving 1979 was no fluke, 9 BBWAA voters thought the all-time home run and RBI king was unworthy of their votes. Despite this, the Hall did not cave in to demands to require future potential voters to take an IQ test first.
