Ken Griffey Jr., Trevor Hoffman among 15 newcomers on 2016 Hall of Fame ballot

Outfielder Ken Griffey Jr.; righthander Trevor Hoffman and infielders David Eckstein, Troy Glaus and Mike Lowell join 17 holdovers from the 2015 balloting in which pitchers Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez and John Smoltz and catcher-infielder-outfielder Craig Biggio were elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y., the first time in 60 years that as many as four players on the BBWAA ballot were elected in the same year…..

Other players receiving sufficient support to remain on the BBWAA ballot for 2016 were pitchers Roger Clemens, Curt Schilling and Mike Mussina; first basemen Fred McGriff and Mark McGwire; second baseman Jeff Kent; third baseman-designated hitter Edgar Martinez; infielder Nomar Garciaparra and outfielders Barry Bonds, Larry Walker, Gary Sheffield and Sammy Sosa….

Other players new to the ballot brandishing World Series rings are outfielders Garret Anderson (2002 Angels), who was the 2003 All-Star Game MVP at Chicago’s U.S. Cellular Field, and Jim Edmonds (2006 Cardinals), an eight-time Gold Glove Award winner and four-time All-Star, and second baseman Luis Castillo (2003 Marlins), a three-time Gold Glove Award winner who led the NL in stolen bases twice.
Billy Wagner, whose 422 career saves rank second among left-handers, and fellow lefty Mike Hampton, the 2000 NLCS MVP, are also on the ballot for the first time along with catchers Brad Ausmus and Jason Kendall, catcher-first baseman Mike Sweeney, infielder Mark Grudzielanek and outfielder Randy Winn.
