Lou Whitaker Newsbeat

HOF committee: Whitaker’s case discussed, fell short this time

“There was no decision not to include Lou Whitaker,” said Jack O’Connell, a longtime Hartford (Conn.) Courant writer and longtime secretary/treasurer of the Baseball Writers Association of America.

“His career was discussed along with many others, but he did not get sufficient support to make the ballot. There were quite a few other players from that era who might have been worthy of inclusion, but we were limited to 10. This does not mean Whitaker or anyone else who did not make the ballot will be excluded forever.”
