After seeing the news of Robinson's death, I looked up the oldest MLB HOF
members. I was surprised to see that there are only 3 living members of the HOF whose induction took place prior to 1980. I figured the list would expand considerably once we moved into the 1980's, but it really doesn't. There are only 13 living members of the HOF whose induction was prior to 1990 (including the 3 that were prior to 1980). Just goes to show that we are quickly losing those guys that played in the 50's and early 60's.
