About this blog: Brett Kiser started this blog as a writer website/blog where like-minded individuals could visit and discuss baseball – with an emphasis on Hall of Fame debate. This blog will essentially become a community gathering for baseball aficionados who desire to make claims for neglected former ballplayer’s enshrinement in the Hall of Fame.
To get things started, just browse through the blog for your favorite non-enshrined player (type his name in the search engine) and leave a comment extolling his career. Feel free to leave both positive and negative comments on players. If you see a name on this blog that you feel should not make the Hall of Fame, tell everyone why. But, above all, have fun.
