One inductee was selected by the Baseball Writers and one by the Veterans Committee. Casey Stengel managed all over the place but primarily the Yankees and Mets. Ted Williams was the first player to go into the Hall of Fame with ties to the Padres. He played for the Padres in 1936 when he was scouted by the Red Sox. He is one Padre that I always wished I could have gotten a signature of. In 1966 my Dad got transferred from the Charles H. Roan in Newport to the Charles Dahlgren in Norfolk and so we moved again.
