I agree with that statement not only about Cokes but many others. It's not like one pocket hall of fame has been around for fifty years, it's in its infancy and such should recognize players from yesteryear. It would be like starting a hall of fame out thirty years from now and not having Fred as a nominee year after year and no one remembering him for his banks. Refresh my memory, was it banks or ten ball, getting old. Recognize an extra two three a year. It doesn't have to be a wholesale induction. I keep wanting Bob Bowles for the banks but so very few remember what a great player he was. A teacher and a nice man, a credit to the game. His running mate for years was Eddie Taylor and Eddie didn't run with slouches. Multiple fiat inductions have my vote. Three max per year for a certain number of years.Hubert Cokes isn't going to like being passed over again. Things like his induction should be done by fiat rather than popular vote. These matters can't be left to the masses to decide.
