Tells of the 1966 inductions into the National Baseball Hall of Fame at Cooperstown New York. Included were Ted Williams and Casey Stengel.
Nice to have from a town close to Boston. Other news of the day throughout. Minor spine wear, otherwise in nice condition.
wikipedia notes: Elections to the Baseball Hall of Fame for 1966 followed the system introduced for even-number years in 1962. The Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA) voted by mail to select from recent major league players with provision for a second, "runoff" election in case of no winner. Ted Williams tallied more than 90% on the first ballot. Meanwhile the Veterans Committee was meeting annually to consider executives, managers, umpires, and earlier major league players. It selected Casey Stengel.
