Not So Little, Doolittle Mistake

January 27, 2021

Oh Mr. Bradford Doolittle, the Kennedy Administration, tragically only encompassed 3 Baseball Hall of Fame elections (’61-’63), with 9 people gaining entry, starting with Max Carey as the lone one to do so, in 1961.

Thus the following, written by Doolittle on ESPN.com is wrong.

“Tuesday’s announcement means that no new players gained Cooperstown entry for the first time since the Kennedy administration. During the period from 1958 to 1960, only Zack Wheat (1959) was selected.”

The Kennedy Administration began on January 20, 1961, as cited last week, (now) sixty years and one week ago.
