Atlanta Braves History: Dave Bancroft selected for the Hall of Fame (January 31, 1971)

January 31, 1971 was a great day in Atlanta Braves history. The Hall of Fame Special Veterans Committee selected 7 men for enshrinement: former players Jake Beckley‚ Joe Kelley‚ Harry Hooper‚ Rube Marquard‚ Chick Hafey‚ Dave Bancroft‚ and executive George Weiss.

Dave Bancroft was a Brave manager from 1924 to 1927. They finished 8th, 5th, 7th and 7th. I’m thinking he got for in the Hall of Fame for being a player not a manager.
