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.

He led the American League in at bats five times, in hits four times, and in triples once. He batted .300 or better six times, and led the league in fewest strikouts a remarkable 11 times. He was a fixture in the All-Star game during the 50s, being selected in every year from 1951-1961.

The preview to the '57 game is a look at the individual players selected for both squads, including close-up or action shots of each, taken during the first half of the season or from the '56 All-Star Game the year before.
Most of the game action is packed into the ninth inning. In the top of the frame, the A.L. expands its 3-2 lead to 6-2, but the Nationals come roaring back to come within a run in the bottom half. Minnie Minoso of the White Sox, who drives in the winning run with a double, is the star of the game, with two came-saving ninth-inning plays in the 6-5 American League victory.
After Vice-President Richard Nixon throws out the first ball, American League starter Bob Turley gives up all three N.L. runs during the first two innings. After that however, A.L. hurlers dominate, especially Billy O'Dell of the hometown Orioles, who pitches three perfect innings to close out the game for a 4-3 American League win. Nellie Fox has two hits, while Mantle, Cerv, Malzone, Triandos, Ray Narleski, Mickey Vernon, Mays, Skinner, Thomas and Musial have one apiece.

Chicago White Sox History
Chicago White Sox Baseball History Chicago White Sox, professional baseball team and one of five teams in the Central Division of the American League (AL). Originally called the White Stockings, the team plays at Comiskey Park in Chicago, Illinois, and wears uniforms of white, black, and silver. The White Stockings were established in 1900 when owner Charles Comiskey moved his minor league team, the St. Paul Saints, to Chicago. In April of that year the team was officially renamed the White Sox and a year later the team became a charter member of the American League. (A team called the Chicago White Stockings, originally formed in 1870, became the National League Chicago Cubs.) Capturing the pennant again in 1919, the White Sox were heavily favored to defeat the Cincinnati Reds in the World Series. To the surprise of many, however, the Reds won the best-of-nine series. The White Sox returned to the top of the AL the next year but with eight games left in the season a grand jury convened to investigate rumors that Jackson and several others had agreed to play poorly during the 1919 series in exchange for $100,000. Though found not guilty by the court, several players admitted their involvement with gamblers and the eight Black Sox (as they became derisively known) were banished for life from professional baseball by Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis and Chicago then dropped to the bottom of the league.

In the Hall of Fame gallery are bronze plaques commemorating the “immortals” of baseball. Each year elections are held to select new members to the Hall of Fame. Electees are mainly former players but also include others who have contributed to the advancement of the game. By 1995 only 172 players had been inducted out of about 14,000 who had played major league baseball. Other inductees include baseball managers, umpires, pioneers of the game, baseball executives, and players from the Negro baseball leagues.
The Hall of Fame Committee on Veterans elects players who have been retired from the major leagues for at least 23 years and who competed in at least ten seasons in the major leagues. Members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America elect players who have retired from playing five years before election, been active in the game during the preceding two decades, and competed in at least ten seasons in the major leagues.

Cambridge Book Review
The Man Who Once Played Catch with Nellie Fox
By John Manderino
Academy Chicago Publishers, 1998
Reviewed by Gay Davidson-Zielske
A mechanic by vocation, Hank's real life is played out on the diamond. Like Fox, he is a second baseman and he is proud of the fact that he once made it up to the minors, although that fact makes his current lot, playing for a suburban Chicago league team sponsored by Shopalot, seem woefully inadequate.
The novel opens in one of its main settings Jerry and Larry's Sports Palace, where Lingerman is taking a ribbing from his lifelong-friend-and-nemesis-in-one, Tommy, about getting beaned by a pop-up and then simply walking away from the game in progress. While this humiliation might normally come under the heading "shit happens," for Hank it symbolizes his truly obsessive fear he's washed up in all aspects of his life "forty years old and no good anymore."
And while there is never a question that this is the love song, maybe even the swan song for Lingerman as baseball player, the book itself is not through taking some risks, such as being narrated from a revolving point of view. We hear about Lingerman's life from points of view ranging from that of the comic character Redman, a successful accountant with a proud "one-sixteenth" Lakota Sioux blood, whose own midlife identity crisis prompts him to quit his life and the team to try to return to his warrior forefathers to that of Brian, the ten-year-old son of Lingerman's occasional girlfriend Karen. Because dialogue is Manderino's real strength, this unusual technique works very well to enlarge our view of Hank's reality. (As the mother of a nine-year-old, I can vouch for the realism of Brian's speech and world view. The author's first novel

Nellie A book and look on baseball’s “mighty mite” Bygone baseball: The unfamiliar, the unusual, the dramatic By C. Philip Francis It is not unusual for a ballplayer to make it all the way to the Hall of Fame without spending even one day in the minor leagues, (Dave Winfield and Al Kaline quickly come to mind.), but most work their way up the hard way. Jacob Nelson Fox was certainly one of them. He was not born with the customary athletic muscular body and innate qualities found in a Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio, or Ted Williams, but the five-foot nine-inch, 150 pound Nelson Fox, or Nellie, scratched his way from a World War II spring training camp as a teenager all the way to Cooperstown with a tremendous drive to excel. Just in case you need a quick baseball fix before the pre-season games begin this spring, spend some quality reading time with Little Nel The Nellie Fox Story , an up-close and personal look at Little Nel by David Gough and Jim Bard. Gough, a member of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) and the Washington Baseball Historical Society, has taught at Washington Bible College in Maryland and lives in Alexandria, Virginia.

    Re: Rolling your wrists
    Posted by: Maximum ( ) on Thu May 24 11:53:57 2001
    My coach has this theory of rolling the wrists at contact. I know that this is wrong, however, he says that it will make your bat more level as it comes across the plate. He says the bat should be like this line simply straight across. To achieve this level swing he says I should pull the top hand over the bottom hand.
    > I am wondering if my bat should be level as it crosses the plate, or is it okay if the bat head is a little bit lower than my hands. If you look at the power hitters today, it seems as if their hands are always a little higher than the bat head , especially on a low ball. Coach says we should have the bat level everywhere, and I am not sure if this is a good thing.
    It's all about gettin the bat inline with the ball. If the pitch is coming at the plate at a downward angle of about 15 degrees, then the bat should be goin up at about 15 degrees. When I tried swinging level (though not wrolling my wrists) I would either hit little liners that bounced in fron of the middle infielders, or choppers about 2 feet in front of the plate. So hit upwards.
    Check this from Science Of Hitting
    "Now, what about that "level" swing? As I said, you have always beard that the ideal swing is level or "down." Your swing often coincides with your physical capabilities. Certainly a Nellie Fox bad more of a level swing than a Mickey Mantle, because Nellie didn't knock down fences. Fox was a great little punch hitter who concentrated on getting a piece of the ball, on being quick with the bat, on directing balls sharply through the holes instead of up in the air. He had his sights high-to get on top of the ball. A fly ball from a light hitter is usually an out. When the ball is on the ground it puts a greater burden on the fielders. Things can happen.

    HOME TICKETS SCHEDULE PLAYERS ... TEAM HISTORY Chicago White Sox Baseball History Chicago White Sox, professional baseball team and one of five teams in the Central Division of the American League (AL). Originally called the White Stockings, the team plays at Comiskey Park in Chicago, Illinois, and wears uniforms of white, black, and silver.
    The White Sox won the West Division in 1993 and led the newly formed Central Division in 1994, when a players’ strike ended the season prematurely. In 1983 Chicago had ended a 24-year playoff drought by winning the West Division. Leading the team were sluggers Harold Baines, Carlton Fisk, Ron Kittle, and Greg Luzinski, and pitchers Rich Dotson and LaMarr Hoyt, who both won 20 games. Before 1983 the team’s last postseason appearance came in 1959, with a squad featuring Luis Aparicio, Nellie Fox, and Early Wynn.
    Chicago fielded several powerful teams during the early 1900s, winning World Series championships in 1906 and 1917. But the club’s success was marred soon afterward by the most infamous affair in major league history—the Black Sox scandal. Shoeless Joe Jackson and seven teammates were banned from baseball for life for their role in throwing the 1919 World Series to the Cincinnati Reds.
