    Al is is a Hall of Famer. Anyone who watched him hit knows that. He demonstrated for a long enough time that he was one of the game's all time great hitters. Just because he came up a little short of the "magical" 3000 hits should not prevent him from entering the hall. Please get something right for once and put Al in.

    As a lifetime Phila. Phillie fan I have always respected Mr. Oliver as a consumate all-star and ball player. As a life time .300 hitter and only 257 hits short of 3,000 he belongs in our HOF. He is certainly in mine. Best Wishes Scoop!
