Misunderstood? Maybe. Hall of Fame? Hard to separate the truth from the myths, but I'd say no.

Maybe they should put Kinsella in the Hall instead... ;-D

So it doesn't matter that he cheated and knowingly broke the rules and threw the 1919 World Series?

I voted "no". He cheated the game, so he shouldn't be in the hall, in my opinion.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
