Official Redlegs Review Hall of Fame Ballot for Readers


On Friday, we unveiled our staff ballot for the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Former Houston Astros second basemen Craig Biggio and former New York Mets catcher Mike Piazza garnered our seal of approval after each collected 77% of the overall vote. A three-fourths majority vote (75%) was needed in order for a candidate to be selected.

But now we are turning over the Hall of Fame voting to you all, the readers. Redlegs Review would like to see who its followers would vote for if given the chance. Well, now is your chance!

Below you will find the ballot used by the BBWAA. To participate, please leave only the name(s) of who you are electing in the comments section attached to this post. Electors may vote for as few as zero (0) and as many as ten (10) eligible candidates. Please only submit one ballot/comment per person in order to for us to record a more accurate poll. The voting period will end next Tuesday (Jan. 8) at noon. A post detailing the results will be published on RR in the evening. The official announcement from the BBWAA will come on Wednesday, Jan. 9.

Voting shall be based upon the player's record, playing ability, integrity, sportsmanship, character, and contributions to the team(s) on which the player played.

I suggest using Baseball-Reference.com, along with your personal baseball knowledge and experiences, to record your vote. Links to each player's B-R page are provided. Remember, a player must receive at least 75% of the vote to gain induction.
