My Hall of Fame Ballot

One of the joys of being a baseball fan is arguing. Arguing with the umpire over a call at second, arguing with the guy on the barstool next to you about the best defensive shortstop of all time, arguing with your spouse over where to spend the Holidays . . . oh, wait, that’s not a baseball argument. Anyway, the annual Hall of Fame ballot was just released, which is an annual excuse for an argument over who should be admitted. If I had a vote, this is what my ballot would look like.

  • Jeff Bagwell
  • Barry Larkin
  • Edgar Martinez
  • Dale Murphy
  • Tim Raines
  • Alan Trammell

I could be persuaded about Jack Morris and I still find it hard to believe that Rafael Palmeiro really did take steroids, positive test or not, but that’s a different argument.

About Austin Gisriel

You know the guy that records a baseball game from the West Coast in July and doesn't watch it until January just to see baseball in the winter? That's me. I'm a writer always in search of a good story, baseball or otherwise.
