The Veteran's Committee has spoken, and it says, Bowie Kuhn was grrrrrrreat!!!

Former commissioner Bowie Kuhn was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame by the revamped Veterans Committee on Monday while his longtime adversary, players' union boss Marvin Miller, was left out for the second time this year.

Former Dodgers owner Walter O'Malley, managers Dick Williams and Billy Southworth and ex-Pirates owner Barney Dreyfuss also were elected.

Rob Neyer thinks the Committee did okay with its picks, despite snubbing Doug Harvey, whom I learned all about as a kid from reading this book.
