The happiest of Yankee days, 29 years ago today Mickey Mantle and Whitey Ford were voted into the Hall of Fame.
Ex-Yankees Steve Balboni (1957) and Jack McDowell (1966).
Rising star Albert Pujols (1980), lefty starter (mostly) Ron Villone (1970), legend Dizzy Dean (1911).
On this day in 1905, outfielder Frank Huelsman was traded for the fifth time in eight months, ending up with Washington. He went from St. Louis (Cardinals) to Chicago to Detroit back to Chicago (both times, this was the White Sox) to St Louis (Browns) to Washington.
And listed last, to separate them as far as possible from those with whom they really don't rank at all (though I like Dave a lot), Dave Winfield and Kirby Puckett were elected to the Hall two years ago today.
