2013 Hall of Fame Ballot Announced

by pops on November 30, 2011

A relatively weak roster of newcomers to the 2102 HOF ballot may raise hopes for holdovers from last year such as Barry Larkin, Lee Smith, Jeff Bagwell and Jack Morris.

The newcomers are lead by former Yankee Bernie Williams and four-time All Star Ruben Sierra. The list is rounded out by:

  • Bill Mueller
  • Tim Salmon
  • Vinny Castilla
  • Javy Lopez
  • Tony Womack
  • Terry Mulholland
  • Brad Radke
  • Jeromy Burnitz
  • Brian Jordan
  • Eric Young
  • Phil Nevin
Carryovers from last year are:
  • Barry Larkin
  • Jack Morris
  • Jeff Bagwell
  • Larry Walker
  • Rafael Palmeiro
  • Juan Gonzalez
  • Edgar Martinez
  • Don Mattingly
  • Fred McGriff
  • Mark McGwire
  • Dale Murphy
  • Tim Raines
  • Lee Smith
  • Alan Trammell

McGwire and Palmeiro have suffered in past voting due to their connections with steroids. It will be interesting to see how they fair this time around since Barry Bonds, Roger Clemons and Sammy Sosa will join them on the 2013 ballot.

Spread the Rumor!
