    Welcome to the 2036 Hall of Fame ballot! There’s lots of change on this year’s ballot. 18 names from last year moved off the ballot (3 entered the HOF, 6 exhausted their eligibility and 9 didn’t receive votes) and 12 players are new to the ballot.

    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.

    There’s a few important notes for this year:

    -There was a stat listing problem with CF/RF Salgero and it looks like his HR total was typoed. He was listed with 177 HRs and he really has 274 HRs. This should be his final year but I’m extending his eligibility by two years due to this mixup. I’ve checked many other players and this is an isolated incident.
    -Last year I started listing reasons to vote for players in their final year of eligibility. I’ve discovered that this isn’t feasible with my schedule and decided against doing it in the future.
    -We’ve only inducted one SP in the past six ballots. If we keep this up, we’re on the verge of becoming the HOH: Hall of Hitters. There are three starters in their final year who should be carefully evaluated.
    -The WBH’s version of a 3000 hit, 500 HR guy (LF/RF Maekawa) returns to the ballot for a third time.
    -The WBH’s all-time hits leader (IF Nozara) joins the ballot for the first time.

    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.
    -Players in their tenth year of eligibility are marked with “FINAL YEAR.”
    -You’ll want to keep this post available because stats don’t appear on the ballot, only names and teams do.
    -The deadline for voting is Thursday June 12th at 7:00pm EST.

    Do you feel passionate about a particular candidate? Make the case for them in a comment below. Voting tends to spike for players when somebody posts on their behalf.

    Here’s a list of our first time nominees (links below): SS Cho, RF Denavedize, 3B/1B Dungey, C Escalada, IF Guajardo, 1B Luevand, C Maldonado, IF Nozara, 2B/3B Orosco, LF Pak, 1B Pak and SP Braulio

    I want to advocate on behalf of both Hyun-sik Pak, and Sergio Trevino.

    Pak is the all-time saves leader.

    Trevino is the all-time stolen base leader.

    I think these categories are important enough that their leaders should be in the hall!

    There are three great catchers on the ballot, and I hope everyone votes for Maldonado, Sin, and Politti. Those three are in a tier by themselves.

    Sin gunned down 500 baserunners in his career. His outstanding offensive and defensive contributions have been discussed before, but wanted to throw that in. Arguably the best defensive catcher in or out of the Hall.

    1st appearance for my star SS, Nozara. All time WBH hits leader, runs leader, #2 in doubles, #2 in triples, #14 HRs, #8 VORP, #7 WAR… and a top-notch, gold glove winning SS. He did have some batting average issues towards the end, but his career numbers and the leader of my USA championship run (7 titles) speak for themselves. Cap_PDT_01_07

    Could we get Batting Average/On-base Percentage/Slugging percentage line for the hitters? It’s difficult to compare hitters when only counting statistics are used.

    This would be too much work for me. I already spend hours compiling all of this information. When you combine that with the fact that I work a full-time job, own a business and am in the process of starting a second business, there’s just no way I can add to the committed time.

    Each player is listed with a link to their player page so that you can gather any additional data that you want. I also recommend using David’s fantastic stat compiler to compare players and their all-time ranks.

    Whoa. Totally did not know about that stat compiler. That thing would be PERFECT for compiling a list for awards each year.

    Bump.

    Don’t forget that the deadline for voting is Thursday evening. We have a pair of players just above the 75% threshold and your vote can either keep them in or knock them out. Your votes count!

    Interestingly, we’re also on pace to have our second unanimous selection ever and it isn’t the all-time hits leader.
