Hall of Fame Injustice.

The Jolbert Veras Tragedy  

Lakeland, FL (McC) The first thing I will like to say is McCabe magazine  normally does not take a position on whether a player should be inducted into the Hall of Fame are not. However, after last year’s tragedy of Jolbert Veras getting only one vote, we could not sit back and watch this body fail to do what is right.

Jolbert Veras retired after season 18 second on the McCabe all-time career Home Run list (673), and forth on the Runs Batted In career list (1,728). Veras played 15 years in the majors (2,211 games), collected 2,430 hits, and scored a total of 1,399 runs with three different major-league teams, the San Diego Padres, Chicago Cubs and the Oakland Athletics. He is also a two-time MVP a World Series winner with San Diego, a silver slugger award winner and gold glove winner at first base. Gentlemen, he received ONE VOTE!  That is more than a tragedy, it is an injustice. We urge all Hall of Fame voters to take this information into consideration. 

If he is not elected into the Hall of Fame this year, McCabe magazine is prepared to show our displeasure with the process by giving our Hall of Fame Vote to the website "Deadspin" and we will also be boycotting the induction ceremonies. We will not send any correspondents, or reporters to this event as a protest. Please help us correct this injustice by voting for the most deserving candidate on the ballot, Jolbert Veras
