Bert Blyleven came close at 74.2 percent, missing election by just five votes. Andre Dawson was an outfielder for the Expos, Cubs, Red Sox and Marlins. He was an 8-time All-Star and was the 1987 NL MVP. He is one of three play- ers to exceed 400 homers and 300 stolen bases and won eight Golden Gloves. His career stats included a .279 average, 2,774 hits, 438 homers, 1,591 RBI and 341 stolen bases. Slugger Mark McGwire who has 583 home runs re- ceived just 23.7 percent. The steroid scandal may forever keep him out of the Hall in Cooperstown. Next year, Baltimore's Rafael Palmeiro goes on the ballot but don't expect "Mr. Viagra" to do much better than poor McGwire. Hopefully, Bert Blyleven will get in next year. In his long career, he was a 287-game winner, had 3,701 strike-outs and 60 shutouts• He also had bad luck. He lost 18 games in his career in which he allowed one or no earned runs. He easily should have been a 300 game winner• They Were Never Exactly "Remember the Titans" But ...

His pieces often show up here in the Post-Gazette but long before he joined the US Army during the Korean War, Shallow played first base. He was a skinny kid who played a great first base. He recently passed on to me a 1948 photo taken at the old Fens Stadium. He was pos- ing with the star pitcher of the Back Bay Bombers named Owney Woods. In the photo, Ed is standing on the right.
