More on Graig Nettles and the Hall-of-Fame

by Paul Semendinger

Yesterday we engaged in some excellent debates about Graig Nettles and his worthiness for the Baseball Hall-of-Fame.

The discussions were fun and lively.

Today, I decided to link articles I found from other writers (many of them baseball’s most respected names) who also believe that Graig Nettles belongs in Cooperstown.

I look forward to some continued discussions.
