2015 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, no one was voted into the WSC Hall Of Fame. Who will make it in this year?
The 2015 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.
Oscar Gamble - DH (5th year)
Jerry Hairston - OF (3rd year)
Dummy Hoy – OF (2nd year)
Frank Isbell – 1st Base (4th year)
Fielder Jones – OF (5th year)
Ron Karkovice - C (1st year)
Al Lopez – MGR (5th year)
Jorge Orta – 2nd Base (2nd year)
Gary Peters - P (5th year)
Bobby Thigpen - P (4th year)
Robin Ventura – 3rd Base (5th year)
Buck Weaver - SS (3rd year)
Hoyt Wilhelm – P (4th year)
Voting will be through July 14, 2015, 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!
