On November 3, Chicago White Sox legend Orestes “Minnie” Minoso was among 10 prominent baseball figures named as candidates for induction into Baseball’s Hall of Fame Class of 2012. The 16-member “Golden Era” Committee - named for and formed to consider the Hall of Fame candidacies of players from baseball’s magical era of 1947-1972 - will vote on the 10 candidates at the Winter Meetings in December.
