Not in Hall of Fame

It looks like Roy Halladay’s plaque won’t be the only one created this year that won’t have a logo on it as the Baseball Hall of Fame has announced that after discussions with Mike Mussina that he too will go with a blank cap.

Mussina was asked this question three days ago when he was elected and he announced that he had not yet decided.  In 10 seasons as a Baltimore Oriole, Mussina went 147-81 with 1,535 Strikeouts and a bWAR of 47.8.  He was almost as good as a New York Yankee where in 8 seasons went 123-72 with 1,278 Strikeouts with a 35.2 bWAR.

Regardless of what hat he has on his plaque we are happy that Mike Mussina is in!

This isn't unusual in that one-third of the plaques already in Cooperstown do not have a logo on the cap. Given the frequency with which players change teams, that team affiliation has really lost its meaning except for a player who spent all his time with one franchise.
