This fascinating book covers every era of baseball, position by position, and answers the question: Which players really belong in the Hall of Fame?

Cohen solves or fuels the debate on who belongs in the Hall of Fame, and who doesn't. He also discusses the careers of the best players not elected to the Hall of Fame and the circumstances surrounding the greatest injustices in the selection process very great player is examined, not only in relation to the era in which he played, but against all the Hall-worthy stars who ever manned the position. 416 pages
