White Sox legend Minnie Minoso was honored by the team on Thursday in an effort to bolster his candidacy for the 2012 Hall of Fame.
No. 9 was named a candidate for baseball’s Hall of Fame Class of 2012 and will be considered for enshrinement by the 16-member Golden Era Committee. The committee will vote on the 10 candidates at the Winter Meetings in Dallas in December. The Golden Era Committee’s 16 members consist of Hall of Famers, executives, historians and media representatives. A candidate must receive 75% support (12 votes) for induction.
The forum was hosted by Pedro Gomez of ESPN and featured guests such as Hall of Famer Tony Perez and Hall of Fame-hopeful Luis Tiant.
