Hall of Merit: Mock 2015 Hall of Fame Ballot - Results

BBTF would elect seven this year if given the chance. Based on last year’s referendum results every returning player down to Sosa would already be inducted. We should probably re-do the referendum with Smoltz, Sheffield, Giles, Delgado and everyone who was between 75% and 5% last year.

Player	Percent
M Piazza	97.6%
R Johnson	96.4%
P Martinez	96.4%
J Bagwell	91.6%
Ba Bonds	90.4%
R Clemens	89.2%
