What makes this announcement unusual is that the most celebrated names from an era marked by performance-enhancing drugs did not gain entry into baseball’s promised land. To make matters even more peculiar, this was a period in baseball history when testing for drugs didn’t exist.</p><p> Wed, 16 Jan 2013 17:18:57 +0000 55867 at http://wamc.org Herbert London: Selecting Hall of Famers
