    Probably doesn't deserve it's own thread, but I still wanted to share this with you guys.

    Pretty fascinating stuff.



    Lou Gehrig was never actually formally inducted into the HOF, so I guess they count his induction the same day they voted on him. (The vote was by acclamation.) If we look at the age at the time of the election, Sandy Koufax was a bit younger.

    I thought for sure Addie Joss was the youngest to die. After looking it up, he too stopped playing at 30, but died a little later.

    Ross Youngs died at 30 yrs, 2 months, and 13 days (11,030 days) while Joss passed away at 31 yrs and 3 days (11,324 days). Tragic.
