If there was ever a place that encapsulated the history of the game of baseball, it undoubtedly would be the baseball Hall of Fame.
The legends of the game, and the legendary moments of the game, are commemorated in one place and honored as they should be. On July 24, new legends were enshrined in Cooperstown among the sport's greats.
However, some of those inducted to the Hall weren't voted in the traditional way. They were inducted by the Era Committees, which consider players who may have been overlooked during their initial eligibility.
During a discussion on MLB Network, ESPN analyst Xavier Scruggs named one former Texas Rangers outfielder as someone he felt was deserving of enshrinement among the legends of baseball.
