Hall Of Fame Top 20 Players not in the Hall of Fame

Quote:
Some players put up stats that would make anyone think they are in the Hall of Fame ... well, not these guys. The list begins at Number 20, for the Top 20 Non-Hall of Famers.

Number 20 - Pete Browning
Going all the way back to the 1800's, you have the infamous slugger, Pete Browning. It may as will be the fact that Browning played in the time that baseball was just a developing game, or a street game. He received the nickname "Louisville Slugger" after playing a total of 13 season, hitting a great number of .341. Brown also hit .402 in the season of 1887, and lead the league in batting averages three times. If it wasn't for the fact that Browning played in the 1800's, where Writers believe was not a high level enough competition, he'd be an easy choice.

Number 19 - Vada Pinson

Smith finished his career at a fat number of 478 saves, which was first at the time of his career. Smith also finished first in the league four times in saves, and a career high

Thank You for having Lee Smith in your "20 Should Be In the NBHOF" How can Baseball Writers elect Goose Gossage (and his 310 Saves) and not Lee Smith or John Franco or Billy Wagner - the 400+ Savers NOW ELIGIBLE BUT NOT ELECTED by these "so-called Pundants" of Baseball
