My vote would be for Dejango. Obviously, Alex will be inducted but what’s the rush, his list of accomplishments will only continue to grow.

Not to disparage any of the others but since it is widely felt that alex is the best onepocket player on the planet it is hard for my not to feel it should be recognized as soon as he is eligible, if for no other reason to show him the recognition for the work and effort he has put into this game

It turns out that the BCA Hall of Fame just announced their inductees for this year -- and Alex is the player they are inducting!

I think bustamante is one of my all time favorite players and people to be around so would be super happy to see him in the hof. Though I still believe that the level of talent and integrity that alex has brought to the game should be recognized as soon as possible to recognize that he is a true champion and great representative of our sport!

Pardon Me! But how can you put these kids, (Busty / Alex), ahead of Johnny Ervolino? Answer me that!!!!. He is the only two time winner of the US OPEN ONE POCKET in '71 & '73. Plus known to hustle One Pocket!

Replies & counter replies very welcomed!!! Back up your choice over mine if you can!

Johnny learned from Lineen, as did Jersey Red & Liscotti, and they in turn passed it on. Keith (Squirrel) Thompson is a recipient, & winner of Johnston City, he studied under Jersey Red. This is our 'heritage', An American One Pocket Heritage, & we Americans created this game, and why are you guys ignoring our American Heritage of this game, and the great players that made this game famous!!! These kids will have their do, but lets take care of past American greats first! Whitey

Here! Here!
