Dizzy is correct on this one, Cummings wasn't inducted as a player
but as one of the pioneers of the game for inventing the curveball
and didn't play 10 seasons, another requirement for players. As far as i know, that rule has only been broken once, for Joss who played 9 seasons

But Wilhelm's plaque at the HOF says he was the premiere reliever of his time....

Wilhelm pitched 1,070 games in his career, and 52 as a starter. It ain't him.

I believe Candy Cummings is the correct answer, after review.

That would be me unless someone else jumps in. Frankly, I never heard of Cummings. Now I have!!!

Gotta love it when you get the answer right AND still learn something!!

Nope... he went in as a "pioneer" correct answer on this one is Dean. Paige went in as a negro-league star.
