2007 BBTF Veterans Committee Composite Results: It’s Harvey and Miller!

Umpire supreme Doug Harvey collected an impressive 79% from the BBTF group.

Legendary MLBPA leader Marvin Miller also nabbed 79% from the electorate.

Famed Kansas City and St. Louis manager Whitey Herzog missed induction narrowly with his 71%. He was selected by the HoM voters with a comfortable 79% of the vote (that group also picked Harvey and Miller, though the latter had a little more support).

Thanks to all who participated!
