Hector Pea from Los Tex asks…: “Does Felix Hernandez have the qualities needed to reach the Hall of Fame; and did you vote for Johan Santana?”
Friend Jeity…: Felix had a great career. But we will have to wait till 2025, when he will be a candidate. To my friend Johan Santana, he was a good pitcher but without qualification for Cooperstown. I was one of the 412 voters who did not vote for him in 2018. Only 10 voted for him, for 2.4%, when the minimum, as you already know, is 75%.
Rosalbo Moreno of Puerto Peasco asks…: “What should I do to write a book with the history of the Cooperstown Hall of Fame? I am young, I recently graduated in literature and I want this to be my Be the first thing.”
Friend Rosie…: Excellent topic. very interesting. You have to go to Cooperstown for about two weeks. I can arrange to see you there and help. In addition, I suggest you supplement your work with stories from Mexican Baseball and the Venezuelan Baseball Hall of Fame, which are also fantastic. I am at your command.
Coro’s Pedro L. Vargas asks…: “Can you publish the issues of Zoilo Versailles, Sandalio Consuegra and Victor Pelot Power?”.
Amigo PeLe…: In 1965 World Series, Doggers-Twins, Versailles hits .286, a home run, four RBIs. And in his 12-year career, until 1971, 242, 95, 471… Consuegra eight years, until 1957, 51-32, 3.37… and in his 12 seasons, until 1965, Pelot Power, 284, 126, 658 pitched.
Marietta Rigales of Evansville, Indiana, J. asks… “Is it true that Major League Baseball players drink too much alcohol and do too many drugs?” Amiga Yeta…: There have been and are drinkers, such as Grover Cleveland Alexander, Billy Martin and Mickey Mantel; But vices like Pete Rose, Tom Seaver, Roberto Clemente and Luis Aparicio were, and still are, and still are.
When it comes to drugs, it is very difficult for the big leaguers to supply them without being caught and punished with suspension, as they go through many tests without warning.
In short, the Major Leagues are a human group, with the same flaws and similar qualities that we all have.
Thank you for the life that has given me so much, even to a reader like you.
