Detroit Tigers Hall of Fame - 1935 Elections

Recommended Posts

The names below represent pitchers and hitters who hung up their Tigers uniforms for the final time by the end of the 1935 season, logging at least 300 innings or 1,000 at-bats during their time with Detroit. It also includes non-players who were significant to the organization.

Between these names and the position players below, we will agree upon a list of up to 12 players which will make up the pool of 1935 nominees.

We will be voting on the 1935 nominees as well as the nominees from previous classes who were not elected but who met the minimum vote percentage to remain on the ballot.

Stay tuned for the final list of carryover nominees. DTrop will release the results of the 1930 elections tomorrow.

Please don't vote until the '30 elections are finalized.

Throwing my hat into the ring campaigning for Frank Navin, who is beyond deserving of a Hall of Fame spot. Besides being the guy for whom Tiger Stadium was originially built, he presided over some great teams in the 1900's and 1920's and was one of the great executives and owners this team has ever had. Given that he's not taking a vote away from anybody, I recommend voting for him. He's worthy.

I have to include this in jest......

I received my Historical baseball Abstract in the mail the other day. Looking up names in the index, I found on page 202 the most riveting reason we should vote for Whit Wyatt. He was one of the two best-looking players. ;)

It shouldn't be long now folks. Also, I saw another book on the Tigers. Very simplistic but may be quick for a brief history of some sort - Tiger Essential.

Pretty weak class on the whole... this should be a good chance for some leftovers to pick up some momentum. I fully plan to vote on five plus Navin... just not sure which five yet.

Earl Whitehill married the Sun-Maid Raisin girl. Yes, that's her in the photo. That isn't necessarily a reason to vote for him (the fact that he's one of the top fifteen Tiger pitchers of all-time is the reason to vote for him), but it can't hurt, can it?

Earl Whitehill did well for himself.

Her name was Violet Linda Oliver. Time to do some website searches.

I, for one, am not totally sold on Navin, here is just one of many sites that show that he was more interested in putting money in his own pockets instead of putting a winning team on the field. http://www.thedeadballera.com/BadBoneNavin.html

Don't get me wrong, Navin is an important figure in the history of the Tigers, however, just as Ty Cobb has been viewed in a somewhat negative way, Frank Navin gets more positive response than he deserves.

A google search of Frank Navin turned up many surprising finds.

Agreed. I will vote for 5 plus Navin.

In my mind, Navin should be unanimous.

I think he should be as well...

The criticism may be correct but he was an important figure in Tiger history. he should be in.

That site actually criticizes Navin for putting money into the ballpark. As if the fact that he laid the groundwork for a stadium that still stands 95 years later is a bad thing. What the hell would they prefer? The Baker Bowl?

Half of our pennants were won by Navin teams.
