Ridiculous not to put George Steinbrenner in Hall of Fame

I would have put him in, after Marvin Miller.

Yankees GM takes dig at Hall voting while praising George Steinbrenner

“I think he is a Hall of Famer,” Cashman said. “Whether he’s been inducted yet or not, I think it’s important. I believe that committee and the people who have the power of votes would be hard-pressed not to acknowledge this was a transformative figure in all of sports, not just baseball. I can’t imagine that he doesn’t warrant [induction], but again, it’s very political at times, this voting. Just like everything else. So there’s some powerful people that view it differently, I’m sure.

“But again, he was a transformative figure in this sport. Sometimes in a really good way and sometimes in a really difficult way. But the bottom line, he was very impactful. Both for this franchise and this industry and clearly a Hall of Famer from my viewpoint. But I don’t have a vote.”

The committee that does have a vote is comprised of members of the Hall of Fame, baseball executives and writers.
