All HOF except Sweet Lou Whitaker and Chase who is still adding to his numbers. You can see why Sweet Lou is one of my favorites when people ask who is the best player not in the HOF?

Each of those players also has a world series ring except Ryne Sandberg.

If we lower the percentage threshold to 65% the great Roger Hornsby and Craig Biggio join the list.

Even at 50% nothing changes, which is far as I’ll go.
