1998 Results: Carter, Blyleven and (finally) Beckley Are the Hall of Merit’s Centennial Choices!
In the Hall of Merit’s 100th “year” of existence, star Expo and Met backstop Gary Carter sailed into our institution with a robust 97% of all possible points in his first year of eligibility.
Curveball master Bert Blyleven also commanded an impressive newbie tally with his 93% of all possible points.

Relocation of the Hall of Merit - Champaign or bust!
No, the Hall of Merit is not leaving BTF. Unless Jim kicks us out or something.
I’m moving. I’ve decided to accept a new job in Champaign, IL. I’ll be out there by May 14. This whole process has been the main cause of my AWOLness of late. A lot has been happening the last few weeks.
