    On a different note, is this the most Hall of Famers to die in one calendar year? I took a quick look at it via baseball-reference, and although I couldn't easily sort it within the site, I was able to do a quick count with some Excel help. It appears this is how it breaks down:

    Most Hall of Famers to die in a calendar year:

    2020 and 1972 - 6
    1948 and 1993 - 5
    1951, 1954, 1963, 1971, 1984, 1989, 1999 - 4
    20 years have seen three HOFers pass away, most recently 2017.
    21 have seen 2 pass away, most recently 2018.
    48 have seen one pass away, most recently 2019.
    2008 was the last year to not have a HOFer pass away. Actually, from 2004 to 2009, a total of only three Hall of Famers passed away. That appears to be the quietest stretch since the 1930s.

    There are now 68 living Hall of Famers.

    I decided to list the players who passed away in the four years that had 5 or more HOFers pass away. Before I did this, I thought it would be clear that 2020 would have the most "star-power lost" of any year, if you will. I would argue that 2020 has had the most evenly-impressive group...but when you look at the list below, you may agree with me that it actually not so clear:

    2020: Seaver, Morgan, Ford, Brock, Kaline, Gibson
    1972: Clemente, Jackie Robinson, Zack Wheat, Gabby Hartnett, Pie Traynor, Dave Bancroft
    1948: Babe Ruth, Hack Wilson, Three-Finger Brown, Herb Pennock, Joe Tinker
    1993: Gehringer, Bill Dickey, Roy Campanella, Johnny Mize, Don Drysdale
