BASEBALL HALL OF FAME MEMBERS
(through 1998)

Hall of Fame

Balls

The greatest honor bestowed upon a professional baseball player is enshrinement in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Just one percent (1%) of those who have played Major League Baseball have a plaque in Cooperstown. Overall, 237 of the tens of thousands of individuals who have served the game as Major and Negro League players, managers, executives, pioneers and umpires have a permanent residence in the Hall of Fame Gallery. The Members have been elected by the Baseball Writers Association of America and specially appointed committees, such as the Veterans' Committee, and the now-defunct Committee on the Negro Leagues.
