    Most HOF Players on one team?

    Little help here folks. Anyone know off the top of their head, which team (team & year) had the most Hall of Fame players on their roster? I cant seem to get that stat from the HOF site. Thanks in advance.

    Most HOF Players on one team?

    Baseballreference.com lists the number of Hall of Fame players for each team by year. Go to the section on teams. Above the teams click on Hall of Fame Register. From scanning that section, the most I discovered were the 1930-3 Yankees.

    The 1927 Yankees had 6 Hall of Fame players:

    Early Combs
    Lou Gehrig
    Waite Hoyt
    Tony Lazzeri
    Herb Pennock
    Babe Ruth

    The 1928 Yankees had 8. In addition to the 6 players from 1927, Bill Dickey and Stan Covelski were on the team. Also Leo Durocher played for the them but would not count as he was inducted as a manager not a player.

    The 1930-33 Yankees had 9 Hall of Fame Players.

    1930

    Early Combs
    Bill Dickey
    Lou Gehrig
    Lefty Gomez
    Waite Hoyt
    Tony Lazzeri
    Herb Pennock
    Red Ruffing
    Babe Ruth

    The 1931-33 teams had the same group with the exception of Waite Hoyt being subtracted and replaced by Joe Sewell.

    Kind of amazing that the 1930 Yanks had NINE HOF'ers and didnt win the series that year. In fact, they finished 3rd in the AL. Imagine a team with that many HOF'ers today, not winning it all?

    Then again, today's Yankees have what- at least 4 future HOF'ers? (Jeter, Rivera, A-Rod, Pudge). And they will hopefully only finish 3rd in the AL East!

    Some people say that the 1929-30 Philadelphia Athletics team that finished ahead of the Yankees was the best team of all time.

    The 1998 Seattle Mariners finished 76-85, third in the AL West, with a lineup that included Alex Rodriguez, Ken Griffey Jr., Randy Johnson and Edgar Martinez (although Seattle dealt Johnson at trading deadline).

    I'll probably be criticized for suggesting that all four are Hall of Fame candidates, but here are comparative statistics for Edgar Martinez and Jim Rice:

    Edgar Martinez was the model designated hitter and the Hall may soon recognize the DH the way it has recognized closers in recent years.
