Kaline and Snider land in Baseball Hall of Fame

Al Kaline, longtime star right fielder for the Detroit Tigers, and Duke snider, slugging center fielder of the old Brooklyn dodgers, were voted into baseball's Hall of Fame Wednesday.

Snider, who hit .295 with 407 home runs in 18 seasons between 1947 and 1964, got 333 votes to make it in his 11th year on the ballot.
