Re: “Hall of Fame vote today for former Arkansas Traveler Dick Allen

Dick Allen should absolutely be in the Hall...the Wampum Walloper! He was one of the premier power hitters in the 2nd dead ball era of the 1960's. NL ROY '64, AL MVP '72 (just missed Triple Crown with CHISOX) and 7x All Star. Considered by many baseball historians to be one of the top four long ball crushers of all time (Ruth, Foxx, Mantle and Allen). He overcame extreme harassment in minor league ball in Little Rock Ark and rough treatment by Philly fans during the racial turmoil of the 60's. Willie Mays was quoted as Allen hitting the ball harder than anyone he ever saw. Anyone who saw one of his titanic shots leave Connie Mack Stadium will never forget him. Get him in the hall already!!!
