Unfair Bias Against Yankees For Baseball Hall Of Fame?
This past weekend, the National Baseball Hall of Fame inducted six new members into the hallowed halls. Included in this year's class was legendary pitcher Mariano Rivera. In what seems to be a formality, former Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter will be inducted as a part of the 2020 class. Yankees manager Joe Torre was also inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2014. Despite four World Series championships during the 1990s, are these the only Yankees that will become Hall of Famers?
In comparison, the 1990s dynasty of the Atlanta Braves have had almost double the amount of inductees in that team while only winning one World Series (Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, John Smoltz, Chipper Jones, Bobby Cox)
Despite winning more world championships than any other North American professional sports franchise, the Yankees rank tenth in team members who have become Hall of Famers in all four major professional sports hall of fames
Former Yankees who are not Hall of Famers include Roger Maris, Tommy John, Thurman Munson and Don Mattingly.
