Thousands have played, coached or influenced professional baseball since it emerged in the late 18th century, but just 310 have been inducted into its most exclusive club: the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame.

With so few players and personnel from the sport’s long history enshrined, even a storied franchise like the Red Sox is going to have some of its greats left out. While icons like Ted Williams and Pedro Martinez were no-doubt honorees, there are several Red Sox standouts who never got — or haven’t yet gotten — invited to the Hall. Whether or not these memorable players ever have their day in Cooperstown, they won’t ever be forgotten in Boston.
