I can't believe we never set up his own thread, since he was on the ballot for an extremely long time before he was finally elected.

"Ee-Yah" was analyzed on these threads:

1908 Ballot Discussion

Shortstop Positional Thread

If you know of any others, please let me know. However, since he was discussed for countless "years," please only inform me of threads where he was discussed heaviliy.

In what year was he finally inducted?

He was elected in 1960. His case was one of our most-debated ever; you're likely to find posts relating to his case scattered over a majority of the discussion and ballot threads for 50 years.

Hughie was our all-time leader in "voting points" at the time of his election. He's since slipped to 8th but hopes to finish in the project in the top 10.

Though not a voter, I was a long-time supporter of Jennings. Glad he made it in.
