TWO NEWEST MEMBERS: The Baseball HOF Veterans' Committee this morning selected longtime umpire Doug Harvey and former MLB manager Whitey Herzog for induction into the hall from the managers and umpires ballot. The committee did not select any candidates from the executives ballot for induction, including former MLBPA Exec Dir Marvin Miller, whose candidacy had been among the most fervently discussed. From the executives ballot, former Tigers Owner John Fetzer received eight votes, falling one vote short among the 12-person committee for the necessary 75% threshold for induction. Miller and former Yankees Owner Jacob Ruppert received seven votes each, falling two votes short.
