2013 WSC Hall Of Fame Ballot
You can vote for as many or as few players as you want. The rules are the same as the MLB Hall of Fame. 75% of the vote will get a player in. At least 5% of the vote will keep a player on the ballot for next year. A player has to be away from the White Sox for a minimum of five years for ballot consideration. If a player cannot get 75% of the vote after 15 tries, he is taken off the ballot.
Last ballot, shortstop Luis Aparicio and outfielder Joe Jackson were voted into the WSC Hall Of Fame. Who will make it in this year?
The 2013 ballot includes a player for each positional spot on the field, a designated hitter, a manager, and pitching has been split into spots for starter, middle relief and closer.
Harold Baines – OF (3rd year)
George Dickey - C (1st year)
Nellie Fox – 2nd Base (3rd year)
Oscar Gamble - DH (3rd year)
Jerry Hairston - OF (1st year)
Frank Isbell – 1st Base (2nd year)
Fielder Jones – OF (3rd year)
Al Lopez – MGR (3rd year)
Gary Peters - P (3rd year)
Bobby Thigpen - P (2nd year)
Robin Ventura – 3rd Base (3rd year)
Buck Weaver - SS (1st year)
Hoyt Wilhelm – P (2nd year)
Voting will be through July 16, 2013, with the results announced shortly after. You can vote on the right sidebar. Any position left open due to election or cuts will be filled by another player next year.
The results should prove interesting. Have fun!
