Roger Maris. If you ask anyone under the age of 30 if Roger Maris is in the Hall of Fame, I'm guessing 90% of them will say "yes". Broke Babe Ruth's single-season home run record and held it until steroids came along. League MVP once and World Series MVP twice. He had a short career (12 years), but so did Sandy Koufax and Dizzy Dean, who are current HOFers. If you look at his lifetime stats, they don't scream "Hall of Fame", but the seasons in which he played considerable time his stats are excellent. Besides, just the name Maris is certainly Hall of Famous.
