Vote: NYBD 2012 Hall of Fame Ballot

By Mike Silva ~ January 1st, 2012. Filed under: Hall of Fame.

We are a little over a week away from the Baseball Hall of Fame announcing its 2012 selection.

Each year, I give the readers of NYBD an opportunity to cast their own BBWAA-style ballot. Last year Bert Blyleven and Roberto Alomar garnered the most fan support, but not the requisite 75% needed for induction. In December, Gil Hodges received the most support on our Veterans Committee ballot, but again not the 75% support. The fans appear to have diverse opinions on who should be elected in the Hall.

Personally, I am supporting Jeff BagwellEdgar MartinezMark McGwireRafael PalmeiroJack Morris, and Tim Raines.

You can check out my full ballot here for reasons on why I supported or did not support a candidate.
