There is some justice in the world. When Bobby Doerr got into the HoF, I knew something was wrong. He was a good infielder and at Fenway was able to hit some home runs. But, the acknowledged best man of his time at second base was Joe Gordon; and hitting into the cavern of left and left center at the old Yankee Stadium and Municipal Stadium, he lost at least 100 home runs (he still had more than Doerr). He was “The Flash”, the best second baseman of his generation. And one more injustice still not rectified: the man they called “Mr. Shortstop”–the very best of the 1940s–was Marty Marion, still alive, and waiting to join Pee Wee and the Scooter in the Pantheon.
