  • Mike Walker No brainer, this man belongs in the HOF.

  • Anonymous I lived in Arlington in the 70's and went to a few Ranger Games (big fan), I can almost recite every player. I also used to play in Al's house while it was being built. Good times

  • ROBERT SPINOZA This is an absolute disgrace that Al isn't in the H.O.F. If Ryne Sandberg is in and Al isn't, well then there is something very, very wrong with this picture. Compare the stats...Al Oliver blows him away, period!
