    Welcome to the 2040 Hall of Fame ballot! There are a ton of first time hitters on this year’s ballot, several of whom deserve serious consideration.

    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.
    -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 4th 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 Avils, SS Canalles, RF/LF Copones, 1B De Aragon, CF Hanada, SS/2B Hernandez, IF Hsia, RF Sol, 2B Yu, SP Lendra.

    Feel free to use this post for discussion and politicking.

    Haven’t voted yet, but scanning through the list I see a lot of “appetizers” but no “entrees”. Not much to get excited about. Maybe some coffee will help.

    Pitchers are looking a little thin. There’s some good stuff on offense though.

    There’s a solid group of hitters…no Tier 1 Hall Of Famers IMHO, but a lot of great players that deserve to be in there.

    Would Pablo De Aragòn be our #2 all time in hits?

    Seems like that alone should get him in.

    Nope. He’s in good company though.

    #1 – OF Huie – 2738 – Active
    #2 – OF Chumil – 2570 – Active
    #3 – IF Nozara – 2438 – HOF ’36
    #4 – OF Alfonso – 2386 – Active
    #5 – OF Bazo – 2353 – HOF ’38
    #6 – 1B De Aragon – 2311 – Retired, HOF eligible
    #7 – C Kito – 2275 – HOF ’38
    #8 – OF Maekawa – 2263 – HOF ’36
    #9 – OF Heida – 2162 – Retired, Off HOF ballot
    #10 – 1B Rodriguez – 2146 – Active… and still dominant

    Came up with 6 batters and 1 pitcher. None that really jump off the page for me, but probably deserve a vote on a combination of several stats.

    I know it might be too late but I wanted to put a case up for Chevrony

    This guy was a Machine for 8 years and he was simply lights out. He was nothing short of dominant for us. Over those 8 years his WAR was roughly 27ish which is about a 3.5 per year. That’s not only an eternity in WBH years (almost a 1/3 of our existence) but also one of our best Moca SP I have ever had.

    I think he deserves to be in the HOF.

    Feel free to use these links to help compare the eligible players with the players already in the hall:

    HoF and HoF eligible pitchers
    HoF and HoF eligible batters

    The default sorting is by WAR, but you can sort by other columns by clicking on them. At first glance, it does appear to be a fairly weak class, but browse around and make your cases if you can.

    Love these lists! Thanks for sharing!

    I like this class a lot. It’s missing a Belanger/Tisnado-type of headliner but it’s deep with outstanding second tier options.

    David that tool is amazing. Thanks for doing that!

    I voted, with 7 or 8 on my ballot (I forget). I think several of these hitters are borderline, but have done just enough to get in.

    We’re on the verge of history. This could be a historically low voter turnout and a historically large HOF class.

    Generous this year with 9 but one was a shout out to Hanada who’s not going to the hall. He’s the first player I was responsible for bringing to the major leagues to appear on a HOF ballot. At one time I thought he was a sure thing for 2000 hits and 800 steals but like many other Ventures he faded early.

    The deadline has come and gone and we have a record number of enshrinees! I’m running out the door right now but I’ll post the results tonight.
