  • BBF HOF voting thread, 5/17 to 6/6/08

    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 two (2) from this list:

    Code:
    Cash, Norm………..
    Clarkson, Bus……..
    Elliott, Bob*
    Howard, Elston*
    Parrish, Lance…….
    Smith, Reggie**
    Walters, Bucky*
    Youngs, Ross**
    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, June 6, 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:

    Those with 50% or more last election

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

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

    50%+ voting history

          Cal McVey and Hack Wilson are replaced by Hardy Richardson and Ernie Lombardi.

          It's getting tougher and tougher to find players to fill all 25 spots on the ballot.

                      Why the 3 year hiatus from baseball? What kind of injury did he have?

                      He's officially listed as in the minor leagues. Then again, Rickey Henderson is listed as minor league reserves, so maybe he should be booted from the BBFHOF.
