Baseball began in the U.S and is the professional sport that has the longest history. We launched Almost Cooperstown by noting that baseball contains a long history of players that for whatever reasons, have been shunned by the electors of the Hall of Fame. Thus there are many 'Almost' players still waiting their turn for induction. With less than 2% of the 19,000 players in the HOF, we feel there should be more players included. In these podcasts we discuss the HOF as well as all topics related to the game we love to watch and talk about.
