    Welcome to the 2031 Hall of Fame ballot! We only had one enshrinee last year. Will this year bring us more?

    If you’re new to the league or forget how it works, check out the full Hall of Fame rules. You can also see past enshrinees on the WBH Hall of Fame thread.

    A few key reminders:

    -All GMs, new and old, are welcome to vote.
    -You may vote for ten or fewer players. Voting for more than ten will cause your ballot to be rejected.
    -Players must appear on 75% or more of the ballots to be enshrined in the Hall of Fame.
    -Players from previous ballots appear with their previous vote totals.
    -Players’ stats that qualify them for the Hall of Fame appear in bold.
    -Players receiving zero votes will be ineligible for future ballots.
    -You’ll want to keep this post available because stats don’t appear on the ballot, only names and teams do.
    -The final day of voting is Thursday March 28th..

    Feel free to use this forum for discussion and politicking.

    Bump. Get your votes in!

    There’s still one unanimous decision. Will he become the second unanimous Hall of Famer?

    I wanna make a huge case for Victor Franco. It’s a shame he was retired due to the great contraction that happened. He put up some of the best numbers out there and it was only in about 8 seasons. Look at that VORP! Amazing.

    Please take the time to get this stud into the HOF!

    Voted. Can I say who?

    Victor Franco – maybe best player WBH has seen, too bad we didn’t get to see second half of career
    In Hwang – Better numbers than Estrada, the sole 2030 HOFer
    Simon Salgero – he had it all. each one of his 5 tools had 5 tools
    Sergio Trevino – All time steals leader
    Felix Casilla – Didn’t have alot of saves, but probably the most dominant reliever ever
    Chin Chong – Always loved him
    Hyun-sik Pak – All time saves leader

    Voted… used all 10 of my votes. Franco and Salgero were at the very top of my list.

  • #21665

    Bump.

    We have three players within two votes of either jumping above or falling below 75%. Your votes still matter!

    I’m going to hold off on closing this year’s voting for now. Voting is down just a bit because of our sim inactivity and lack of email announcement. I would move forward if the vote totals weren’t close, but they are. We have one player who will definitely be in but we have four players currently in the 55-75% range.

    I sent a PM to Marc and Gerry asking if I could have access to the league’s email account but that went unanswered.

    Voting will be open through at least Tuesday because I’m going to Florida for the weekend. I’ll have plenty of game access but I won’t have time to run the numbers and do the stats.

    I’ll keep everybody updated on a closing date. Make sure you get your votes in if you haven’t voted yet!

    Bump. This is still the case so make sure that you guys vote!

    I’m still waiting to hear more from Marc so there’s no deadline as of right now.

    Thanks for keeping this open Bob! I will be voting soon.

    I totally forgot last year but was pleased that Dave McTavish got a vote to remain on the ballot – I think he only got mine the year before. Anyway, he gets my vote because

    A) He’s an original Venture Brother Cap_PDT_01_20

    B)He was lights-out for 11 years, mostly for terrible VB teams and if I recall correctly was at or near the top of the all-time saves list when he retired. He was definitely the best closer during his era (okay one of the best).

    C) He was a 2009 inaugural draftee and didn’t enter the league until age 28 so there’s a good chance he would have tacked on at least another 100 saves, maybe more.

    I don’t expect him to make it in but it’s some consolation to see him hanging around the ballot. If no one matches my vote this year it will probably be his last.

    Voted.

    Not gonna give a sales pitch for anyone…just say that it’s a tough call with all these SP. They’re so similar, you feel like if you vote for one, you have to vote for several.

    Enjoyed going through the list, though…a couple of guys have played in Hong Kong, though none would represent us yet.

    I would make cases for players but I want to avoid the perception of bias since I’m running the Hall… Cap_PDT_01_17
