Sons of ’84 2018 MLB Hall of Fame Ballot (If I Had One)


It’s that time of year again where I lay out who I’d vote for if I had a Hall of Fame ballot towards the 2018 election.  Standard rules apply with from the BBWAA form, where I can select between zero and ten players on the current ballot.  For the BBWAA, a player must receive at 75% or more of the 442 ballots being sent out.

New to this year’s ballot: Chipper JonesJim ThomeOmar VizquelJohan SantanaJamie MoyerAndruw JonesLivan HernandezJohnny DamonHideki MatsuiChris CarpenterOrlando HudsonAubrey HuffJason IsringhausenCarlos LeeBrad LidgeKevin MillwoodScott RolenBilly WagnerKerry Wood, and Carlos Zambrano

Returning players include (% votes received for 2017): Trevor Hoffman (74%, 5 votes short in ’17), Vladimir Guerrero (71.7%), Edgar Martinez (58.6%), Roger Clemens (54.1%), Barry Bonds (53.8%), Mike Mussina (51.8%), Curt Schilling (45%), Manny Ramirez (23.8%), Larry Walker (21.9%), Fred McGriff (21.7%),  Jeff Kent (16.7%), Gary Sheffield (13.7%), Sammy Sosa (8.6%)

About Shaneo42

I am an amateur blogger but avid Detroit Tigers fan which started out around the age of 7 during the 1984 Tiger season. That year catapulted me to love the game and want to write about it as much as possible. I played some high school ball, rode some pine in college and co-created and wrote Pepper Baseball Blog for eight years. It's time for a fresh start for myself, the blog, and our readers hopefully as I write about the Tigers, Baseball, and my hobby Baseball cards. I hope you enjoy!
