This committee will review "campaign" packages on file at the National Baseball Hall of Fame. This petition will be submitted in late September 2013 to the National Baseball Hall of Fame as part of a "campaign" package for Al Oliver. Please sign and help support Al Oliver's candidacy for the National Baseball Hall of Fame!

    All Oliver was one of the best pure hitters I ever saw hit. Rod Carew with more pop. Line drives to all fields and few strikeouts. My kind of hitter.
