In his first year of eligibility, legendary southpaw hurler Steve Carlton was the second man elected with also a healthy 92% of all possible points.

2007 BBTF HOF Results: Ripken, Gwynn, Blyleven, Trammell and Gossage!

In his first year of eligibility, iron-man shortstop Cal Ripken, Jr. was selected by the BBTF electorate unanimously.

San Diego legend Tony Gwynn was also picked by 100% of our voters.

Curveball specialist Bert Blyleven found his way on easily more than the required number ballots again for the third straight year with a strong 87%, though that was down from his 96% in 2005 and 2006.

Standout shortstop Alan Trammell was the fourth BBTF HOF pick with his 84%, up from 79% in 2005 and 81% in ...

Revising the Schedule

After DanG’s suggestion and talking it over with John, I think we should move the elections back to once every 3 weeks instead of bi-weekly.

Here’s the rationale . . .

  1. More time to place newcomers in the now-huge backlog.
  2. Eliminates a three-month gap between the 2007 and 2008 elections.
  3. Eases John’s burden of running this thing.
  4. Prolongs the fun!

Here’s what the schedule would look like (the dates below are the days the balloting will close):

1993 January 22

1994 ...
