Mock Hall of Fame Ballot 2018

IMPORTANT: Please read:

This election should follow BBWAA rules, not Hall of Merit rules. However, we hope to see only players that each voter feels belong on their ballots. Leaving 1st-year candidates off your ballot is also frowned upon. IOW, we would like to see an absence of some of the silliness that permeates Hall of Fame voting by the writers.

The election will end Friday on December 22, 2017 (1 PM EST). Results will be posted a short time later.

Please don’t post any vote tallies ...
