1992 Results: Seaver Deemed Terrific By the Hall of Merit, Plus How the Grich “Stole” The Election!
In his first year of eligibility, immortal New York Met pitcher Tom Seaver achieved almost 100% of all possible points to win induction into the Hall of Merit. He is also the sixth player who found himself in an elect-me spot on everyone’s ballot without achieving total unanimity.
In a major upset, Oriole and Angel star Bobby Grich nosed out hit king Pete Rose to earn the second spot this year for induction with 65% of all possible points (less than a point over “Charlie Hustle”). Rose was ...Read More...

2007 BTF Hall of Fame Ballot
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 - if you don’t feel he really is a HOFer, then please refrain from posting that player’s name (examples of whom I am referring to are Mookie Wilson, Scott Broscius, Buddy Biancalana - players who were well liked or were underdogs, but have no creditable HOF resume). Leaving 1st-year candidates off your ballot is also ...Read More...
