MLB Hall of Fame Inductees
All Everything Entertainment’s MLB Hall of Fame Inductees
The 2020 MLB Hall of Fame ballot was released on November 18th of this year. Since then there has been heavy debate and discussion surrounding who should get in. This year unlike others the voters will be turning in their ballots. We here at AEE decided to cast our votes to see who we would induct into the Hall of Fame. After polling 16 of our MLB correspondants, only three players would be inducted if we were the ones responsible for the voting.
If you are not familiar with the Hall of Fame voting, players are required to achieve 75 % of the vote to get in.

As you can see the three players that were inducted in were Derek Jeter, Larry Walker, and Curt Schilling.
Jeter should have been a unanimous selection into the Hall but one of our writers felt it necessary to leave him off his ballot. His reasoning being, much better players should have been unanimous and were not. Therefore he left Jeter off of his ballot, not because he isn’t deserving but because he knew he would get in and he wanted to ensure it wasn’t unanimous.
Larry Walker has been on the ballot for 10 years. He is currently sitting at 54 percent of the vote. Larry had a career OPS of .965. He hit 383 home runs and batted .313 for his career. Larry could also move on the bases raking up over 200 career stolen bases.
Schilling, on the other hand, has been on the ballot for 8 years. He is currently sitting at 61 percent of the vote. Schilling won three World Series in his career, including winning the World Series MVP in one. He was a six-time all-star and Cy Young runner up three times. He won over 215 games while striking out over 3,000 hitters.
Interestingly, no one linked to steroids was voted in by our panel. Bonds and Ramirez were the closest as they obtained 63 percent of the votes needed to get in. Clemens was right behind them pulling in just over 50 percent of the votes needed.
It will be interesting to see who gets the call into the Major League Hall this Spring. Will Jeter be unanimous? Will Bonds or Clemens get in? How did we do with our voting?
