From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Elections to the Baseball Hall of Fame for 1957 followed a system established after the 1956 election. The baseball writers would vote on recent players only in even-number years (until 1967). The Veterans Committee met in closed sessions to consider executives, managers, umpires, and earlier major league players. It selected outfielder Sam Crawford, who made 2961 hits from 1899 to 1917, and Joe McCarthy, who managed the New York Yankees to eight pennants in sixteen seasons with consecutive World Series championships 1936 to 1939.
