    No where close


    And he isn't even eligible.

    No. He would possibly have made it if he'd have not played pro football, but his body of work is not sufficient to enshrine him.

    No not close. Career wasn't long enough and isn't close stat wise. Really only played four full major league seasons and averaged only about 87 games a year. Struck out at such an alarming rate and had only two really good seasons.

    For some reason I felt like reading his Wikipedia page


    Who the F wrote it?

    On July 11, 1990 against the Orioles, Jackson performed his famous "wall run," when he caught a ball approximately 2–3 strides away from the wall. As he caught the ball at full tilt, Jackson looked up and noticed the wall and began to run up the wall, one leg reaching higher as he ascended. He ran along the wall almost parallel to the ground, and came down with the catch, to avoid impact and the risk of injury from the fence.
    During the 1990 season, Jackson hit HRs in 4 consecutive at-bats tying a Major League record (held by several). His 4th came off of Randy Johnson after hitting his first 3 before a stint on the DL.
    After a poor at bat he was known to snap the bat over his knee or, with his helmet on, over his head.
    that is awful writing for Wikipedia.

    Freak athlete HOF yes but definitely a no to the MLB hall. There are much more who are more deserving. I could see his jersey getting retired though if it isn't already.

    Not even close. Arguably the most overrated baseball player of all time. He could have been a hall of famer if he went into the NFL though.

    It's like saying if Chris Young(A's) should be a HOFer

    No, but you dont need to be a HOF'er to be remembered. Bo was great for the game, and athletics in general. True baseball fans will always know of him, HOF or not.
