ESPN The Magazine: Baseball's Hall of Shame
Baseball's Hall of Shame
By Lane Strauss
ESPN The Magazine
As Major League Baseball prepares to self-destruct, we paid a misty-eyed visit to the National Baseball Hall of Fame website, where you can find a selection of items on display for every single team. Inside sources tell us that sometimes the decision-making wasn't so easy. Here are a few pieces that came oh-so-close to making it:
RED SOX: Bill Buckner's glove.
PIRATES: "Before" photo of Barry Bonds.
Maybe the food is more fatty in San Fran?
BRAVES: Whiskey bottle from Chief Noc-a-Homa's tepee.
WHITE SOX: A melted 45 of Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive."
PADRES: "Steve Garvey Is Not My Padre" bumper sticker.
METS: Bret Saberhagen's bleach gun.
PHILLIES: Audio recording of fans cheering (currently not available).
CUBS: Diploma from the College of Coaches.
CARDINALS: Swatch of the tarp that ate Vince Coleman in the 1985 playoffs.
GIANTS: Sponge used by Jeff Kent to wash his truck.
MARINERS: Various Ken Griffey Jr. items (graciously submitted by fans).
REDS: Various Ken Griffey Jr. items (graciously submitted by fans).
RANGERS: Bandages worn by manager Frank Lucchese after Lenny Randle beat him to a pulp.
YANKEES: Derek Jeter's glove (courtesy of Ruben Rivera).
A's: Mule droppings, circa 1972.
