In a few weeks, the veterans committee of major league baseball will make its annual Hall of Fame announcements.
What name from the past will make it this time?
How about Tony Oliva? Here is a guy with 3 batting titles and a .304 lifetime batting average.
It’s time to put Oliva in the Hall.
Between 1964 and 1971, Tony was one of the best hitters in baseball. He won 3 batting titles—1964, 1965 and 1971.
He finished 2nd in 1966. He was the top 5 between 1967-70.
Knee injuries cut short Oliva’s career. However, he did have 2,000 hits!
The veterans committee should put Tony Oliva in the Hall of Fame.
