Who gets the nod in the Beckett.com readers’ Baseball Hall of Fame vote?
By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor
Who gets in?
That’s the question we get the answer to on Wednesday, when the latest class of inductees into the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is announced. After last year’s induction of absolutely no one via the Baseball Writers’ Association of America, there seems to be even more spirited debate this year as a new crop of big names arrives on the ballot from the BBWAA.
We figured we should let you vote, too, though we see that many stars from the past have card values that are a shell of their primes. That’s one sign that collectors aren’t buying like they were and they probably aren’t buying some of the denials.
Below is a ballot just like the members of the BBWAA received, complete with all the names you would not expect to see. You can vote for as many as 10. The players who get votes on 75 percent of the ballots are elected.
