Indians BBF HOF second chance election
This will be one of three second chance round elections this week. What we'll do for the second chance election is a Yes/No vote requiring the greater of 6 or 75% of the votes to induct. The election will be limited to the listed nominees. The elections will only be open for a week--but there will be at least three or four days for discussion and new nominations. You can abstain from an entire ballot (player or contributor), but if you vote in that portion of the ballot, only the guys you expressly vote yes for get credit for a positive vote. The others in that section of the ballot will be considered to have gotten a "no" vote. There will be no limits on how many nominees you can vote for . I will also provide the nomination discussions for the nominees. The deadline for suggesting nominees is twelve hours before the election begins.
In this case, the election will not begin until Saturday, May 5 at 7 am EDT, and will end at 7 am EDT May 12. Nominations close 12 hours before the election begins, or May 11 at 7 pm EDT. Ballots not cast within the stated election time frame will not count.
The Indians have the following already inducted:
- Inducted Players (22): Earl Averill, Bobby Avila, Albert Belle, Lou Boudreau, Rocky Colavito, Stan Coveleski, Larry Doby, Bob Feller, Elmer Flick, Mel Harder, Addie Joss, Ken Keltner, Napoleon Lajoie, Bob Lemon, Kenny Lofton, Sam McDowell, Gaylord Perry, Manny Ramirez, Al Rosen, Joe Sewell, Tris Speaker, Early Wynn
- Inducted Contributors (4): Mike Hargrove, John Hart, Al Lopez, Bill Veeck

Seen on a bumper sticker: If only closed minds came with closed mouths.
Some minds are like concrete--thoroughly mixed up and permanently set.
