1963 Inductee - National Baseball Hall of Fame

Our hitting drills take you past the batting cages and into our state-of-the-art lab where we measure your batting stance, swing and timing. Our computer calculations add science to your swing.

The Hall of Fame’s membership Increased by four to 94, as John Clarkson, Elmer Flick, Sam Rice and Eppa Rixey were elected by the Veterans Committee. At this point in time, the BBWAA only voted every other year and did not vote in 1963. Rice and Flick were on hand to receive their plaques on August 4, 1963, while Clarkson and Rixey were posthumously inducted. Rixey died just five months before the ceremony, in February 1963. In contrast to today’s two to three hour ceremonies, it took just 35 minutes for these four men to be inducted.
