Billy Wagner’s connection to the baseball HOF Class of 2015


The Baseball HOF just announced its Class of 2015, its largest class in 60 years. Next year, long time closer Billy Wagner (Tannersville) comes up on the ballot for the first time. Wagner pitched in the majors from 1995-2010, racking up 432 saves, 2nd-best all time among lefties, and one of only 5 closers to ever rack up 400 saves.

An interesting twist to Wagner-he was within 8 days of being a teammate of all 4 of the Baseball HOF’s 2015 inductees. Check out this article explaining.
