Football prediction Chicago`s legends of the 80`s were chosen in the Hall of Fame
Two veterans who began their famous career as rivals in Chicago in the 1980s were selected in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Former Chicago Cubs Lee Smith`s clown, and Chicago White Sax Harold Bains`s former DH, were backed by a special `Modern Age` commission meeting in Las Vegas for the start of the winter MLB meetings.
With the required 75% support in the 16-member jury vote, Smith won a total unanimity, and Baines received the exact 12 votes. One voice below the border was the former manager of Seattle Mariners and Chicago Cubs Lou Piedilla. Less than five votes were taken by George Steinbren, Orl Harshaiser, Albert Bell, Joe Carter, Will Clark, Davy Johnson, and Charlie Manuel.
