Controversial Hall of Fame Selections

Voters almost unanimously sent Rickey Henderson to Cooperstown, but some inductees barely made the cut. We run down the controversies, debates, and scandals surrounding these marginal Hall of Famers:

Jim Rice: Inducted because, adjusted for inflation, his 39 home run season in 1979 would be the equivalent of an 88 homerun season in 2007

Cal Ripken, Jr.: Though he broke Lou Gehrig's consecutive-games-played streak, many point out that Ripken never recorded a major league hit

Max Carey: Who the hell is Max Carey?

Mordecai "Three Finger" Brown: Though he is considered one of the greatest pitchers of all time, many resisted Brown's induction on the grounds that he was only "98 percent of a man"

Gary Carter: Was somehow able to compile 324 home runs as a catcher despite playing a good deal of his career for something called the "Montreal Expos"

Cy Young: Retired with a major league record 511 wins, but rules at the time allowed players to claim a win whenever they wanted one

Robin Yount: Although the three-time all-star had a solid 20-year career with the Brewers, he never would have made it on the first ballot if his 385 cousins weren't voters

Babe Ruth: Fat

Ty Cobb: Had a lifetime .367 batting average, but also a lifetime .985 racist average

Honus Wagner: Though he was one of baseball's first Hall of Famers, his selection is controversial because Wagner paid Abner Doubleday $2 million to construct a Baseball Hall of Fame and place him in it
