Passing along an inquiry from Tim Wiles, Director of Research at the National Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum.

 "I received an inquiry today about a player named Hyman Dorfman. Inquiring party was a relative and was sure that he had played big league ball.  I can't find him as a big leaguer or a minor leaguer, but the name seems familiar. Have you heard of this guy?

"This type of inquiry is common, but in this case, I can't shake the idea that I should recognize the name. As the name is probably Jewish … I thought I'd run it by you.  Ring any bells?"

Please post responses here, or email Tim ( directly. Thanks!
