    HOF voting questions

    With the departure of the Veterans Committee, will someone please explain to me how each era committee determines who is going to be on the ballot ? What era is this year and who will be on the ballot ? It seems to me these eras are too small and people will be elected just because they were the best of the leftovers. (Just to clear things up Dale Murphy isnít leftovers. He should be in already). I just need some clarity . Thanks in advance

    I would assume anyone who played or played a role (executive, ump, etc) starting after 1988 and who never made the HOF during the 15 year run would qualify and from that pool, they may select a dozen or so to vote on.

    I can't imagine that pool is that large at this point. Figure a guy's rookie season is 1988 and he plays 10 years and retires (1998) with the minimum playing years to be eligible for the HOF. Then he waits 5 years to make the ballot for the first time (2003) and remains on it for 15 years (2018). That guy is still on the ballot for his final vote this year, so I don't think any players could be in that group yet.

    I guess the period is when the player made their greatest impact, so it sounds like they need not have begun their career after that year (1988). For example, Mattingly may fall into that category it would seem, although I would argue that his greatest contribution came before 1988.
