Mormon Murphy not even close

Summarized by Kent Larsen

It's Ryan in a landslide
Denver CO Post 6Jan99
By Mike Klis: Denver Post Sports Writer

Due to stiff competition, former baseball star Dale Murphy, currently serving as president of the Boston Massachusettes Mission, wasn't even close to being inducted into Baseball's Hall of Fame. Murphy drew just 96 votes (19.3% of 497 possible) from the Baseball Writers Association of America, putting him in 11th place in the balloting. To be inducted into the Hall of Fame, players must receive 75% of the votes.

However, this was Murphy's first year of eligibility. Many of those in the Hall of Fame don't make it in their first year.
