    Kiner has the weirdest HOF voting history I’ve ever seen. 1960, the first year he was eligible, he got 1.1% of the vote, 3 out of 269. Nowadays, that would remove him from the ballot permanently. But in ’62 he was up to 3%, then rose little by little, until in he last year of eligibility he just broke 75. It’s weird to think that when he was recently retired, and his career was fresh in people’s minds, he was considered as much a hall-of-famer as Hidel Nomo was this year.Report

    I grew up watching Kiner’s Korner after every game

    Since this supposes you watched the Mets game before it, you have my sympathy.

    (To be fair, from 1984-92 the NYCDMA was a Mets town)Report

    It’s a sad day. What a goofball he could be on the air sometimes! He was great.

    Old Ralph. I agree: the world’s just not the same place today as it was yesterday….Report
