Holding Separate Elections For Player and Non-Player Candidates Would Greatly Improve the Hall of Fame’s Era Ballot Vote Process
By holding separate elections for players and non-players, the Committee would be able to continue to add candidates who lasted 15 years in BBWAA voting while also having enough room on the ballot for candidates such as Grich, Evans, Hernandez, and Whitaker whose Hall of Fame cases are strengthened by advanced metrics but were too quickly dismissed by BBWAA voters. In addition, putting the non-players on their own ballot would not only give the Committee space to select a solid candidate like Piniella but could also allow for intriguing non-managerial candidates such as Johnny Sain, Dave Duncan, and Leo Mazzone—each of whom made their mark as pitching coaches—to make their way onto their respective Era ballot.
