When perusing the Hall of Fame plaques in Cooperstown, you run across countless legends—Ted Williams, Babe Ruth and Willie Mays, to name a few.

Sometimes it's easy to get lost in the enthrallment and forget the very worthy players who do not share a Cooperstown residence with their more popular compeers.

And that is not even when comparing them to the other players in the Hall; they stand on their own merits.
