Hall of Famers | Induction Year List | Research by Baseball Almanac



Did you know that Hal Newhouser , who was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1992 by the Veterans Committee, is the only pitcher who has won consecutive Most Valuable Player Awards ?
Mel Ott , National Baseball Hall of Fame member who spent his entire twenty-two year career with the New York Giants, scored six runs on August 4, 1934 . On April 30, 1944 , he scored six runs again making him the only player to ever score six runs during a single game twice in a career.
In 1963, Warren Spahn of the Milwaukee Braves won twenty-three games at the age of forty-two making him the oldest pitcher in baseball history (as well as hall of famer) to be a twenty game winner .
