Sandy Koufax 12 yrs
Jackie Robinson 10yrs
KIrby Puckett 12 yrs
And these 3 were 1st ballot electees
You don't believe that Walker really belongs in the category of any of the three, do you?
Jackie Robinson played only 10 years in MLB not do to injury or ability, but racism. Koufax was the best pitcher in baseball. Kirby Puckett doesn't really belong anyway, but he got in because he was a "winner" and a great guy (before he became a skeeve), and his career was cut short due to injury.
Not long-term nagging injuries like Walker.
