On January 24, 1939, the baseball writers select Eddie Collins, Willie Keeler and George Sisler to the Hall of Fame. 

Sisler set a major league season-record (later broken by Ichiro Suzuki) with 257 hits in 1920 and batted .420 in 1922 on his way to a .340 career batting average. Collins batted an even .333 for his career, collected 3,315 hits and stole 744 bases as a member of four World Series Champions. Keeler, who “hit ’em where they ain’t”, batted .341 and collected 2,932 hits.
