A Cub In The Hall

Bruce Sutter was elected to the Hall of Fame today; he will be the only inductee from the BBWAA voting.

He was named on 400 ballots (76.9% of the total).

Andre Dawson was fourth, with 61%, behind Jim Rice (64.8%) and Goose Gossage (64.6%).

Sutter becomes the first pitcher to be inducted who never started a single major league game.

Congratulations to Bruce, who pioneered the split-finger fastball, and for one shining season (1977) was nearly completely unhittable.
