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.

Mock 2015 Hall of Fame Ballot
2015 BBTF 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. 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 Monday on Jan 5th 2015 (4 PM EST). Results will be posted a short time later.

Most Meritorious Player: 1971 Discussion
A year I know mainly from the fantastic Topps set. The Orioles, Athletics, Giants and Pirates made the playoffs with the Pirates winning the World Series in seven games. In other news, SABR is formed.

1967 Results: The Hall of Merit is Just “Ducky” Over Medwick - Lemon Also Not Considered a “Lemon!”
In his fourteenth year of eligibility, Cardinal and Dodger slugger Joe Medwick claimed the top spot for immortality with 45% of all possible points.
In his fourth year on the ballot, Cleveland Indians’ ace pitcher Bob Lemon was inducted into the HoM with 42% of all possible points.
None of the newly eligible made any impact upon the electorate this “year.”
A record 81 names appeared on a ballot for this election.
Rounding out the top-ten were: Eppa Rixey, Biz Mackey, Clark Griffith, George ...Read More...
