  • 3-15 to 4-4 BBF HOF voting thread

    Let the voting begin! For anyone who has not participated before, please read the rules posted here

    The Rules

    Those players receiving only one ballot in an election may go on to a list from which voters may only vote for a limited number of such candidates. For more details on this rule, please follow the above link to the Rules. For this election, you may not select more than four (4) from this list:

    Code:
    Bond, Tommy**
    Canseco, Jose**
    Cash, Norm**
    Elliott, Bob*
    Howard, Frank*
    Jones, Charley**
    Kingman, Dave**
    Long, Herman*
    Mathews, Bobby**
    McCormick, Jim**
    Rizzuto, Phil*
    Rosen, Al*
    Smith, Reggie*
    Veach, Bobby**
    For more details on this rule, please consult the link to the Rules above, and to this post: Limited Selection List

    Also, please note that now ballots as short as zero (0) names are now permitted. However, if a voter intends to cast a ballot naming no one, this must be clearly communicated or the ballot will not count.

    Voting in this cycle will end at 11:59:59 pm Eastern Time, March 14, 2008.

    Other information of note is who is in the BBF HOF.

    BBF HOF membership by category

    BBF HOF membership listed alphabetically

    Last month's results are posted. You are requested to pay particular attention to those individuals receiving 50% or more of the vote last election, as they are the most likely candidates to be elected this month. In fact, I have specific posts on players receiving 50% or more of last month's vote:

    Results of last election

    Those with 50% or more last election

    I have also posted this with respect to the status of the project:

    Project Status

    I have posted all the players who have exceeded 50% of the vote at least once without yet being elected

    50%+ voting history

    Also, please note that you can access the last voting thread here.
