What are the highlights of the next Hall of Fame vote? “4 empty frames” holds the key
On January 26, Japan time, the results of the National Baseball Hall of Fame vote were announced, and David Ortiz, who was active as the main hitter of the Red Sox, was inducted into the Hall of Fame in the first year of qualification. In the next 2023 vote, Carlos Beltran with a total of 435 home runs and 312 stolen bases, Francisco Rodriguez with a total of 437 saves will appear for the first time. The names of Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Curt Schilling, and Sammy Sosa, who completed the 10-year qualification period, will disappear from the voting paper, so who are the reporters who voted for these four people? It seems that the point is to use it.

Bertrand is the only player in the first appearance group who may be inducted into the Hall of Fame. Other candidates, including Rodriguez, who holds a major record for season 62 saves, have a total WAR (baseball reference version) of less than 40, so a line with a 5% vote rate that can connect hopes from the next time onwards. If it can be exceeded, it will be like a character. With a total of 2725 hits, 435 home runs, and 312 stolen bases, Bertrand has a WAR of over 70 and is well-deserved of being inducted into the Hall of Fame, but is considered one of the masterminds of the Astros’ fraudulent signature theft. Similar to Bonds et al.’S steroid group, there is a high possibility that the sign theft problem will be a shackle and the vote rate will be sluggish.
In the 2022 vote, Scott Rolen (52.9% last time → 63.2% this time) in the fifth year of qualification, Todd Helton (44.9% → 52.0%) in the fourth year, and Billy Wagner (46.4%) in the seventh year. % → 51.0%), Andrew Jones (33.9% → 41.1%) and others in the same 5th year steadily increased the voting rate. Due to the rule that only 10 people can vote, it is possible that reporters who avoided voting for these players will vote using the slots given to Bonds and Clements, so the vote rate will increase further from the next time onwards. Can be expected. The next candidate for the Hall of Fame will be Lauren, not Bertrand.
In addition, Jeff Kent (351 home runs as a second baseman out of a total of 377 home runs), who has recorded the highest number of home runs in history as a second baseman, will be in the 10th year of the final year of qualification. It reached the 30% level for the first time at 32.4% last time, but this time it has only increased slightly to 32.7%, and it is difficult to enter the Hall of Fame in the press vote. After completing the 10-year qualification period, it is likely that he will entrust his hopes to the selection of the era committee.
Goodbye bullets: 13 Tommy in history, 12 Pujols in active duty
On December 27, Japan time, Jason Catania, a reporter on the official Major League Baseball website, published a special article introducing the top 10 home runs in total. Jim Tommy, who hit the most good-bye home runs in the history of majors, recorded a total of 612 home runs and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in the first year of qualification in 2018. Six people are lined up in second place, one behind, but five of them are Hall of Fame batters and the only active player, Albert Pujols, five years after his retirement, in his first year of qualification. It is definitely seen as being inducted into the Hall of Fame.
Tommy has been active in 6 teams including Indians for a total of 22 years. He is the only player in history to hit a total of 500 home runs with a walk-off home run (September 16, 2007 during the White Sox era, a walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning against the Angels). There are eight good-bye home runs released in overtime, which is the highest number of ties in history along with Frank Robinson and Pujols. Among these eight are the 11-time walk-off home run that he hit on his own Bobblehead Day on April 21, 2001.
Six people, Jimmy Foxx, Mickey Mantle, Stan Musial, Pujols, Robinson, and Babe Ruth, ranked in second place, one behind the top. Among them, the only musical (475 home runs) that has not achieved 500 home runs has a major record of 9 good-bye solo home runs. In addition, 12 mantles (Yankees) and Musials (Cardinals) are the most in history as goodbye home runs released by one team.
David Ortiz, Tony Perez, and Ryan Zimmerman are ranked in 8th place Thailand (11). In Perez, 11 out of 379 home runs are goodbye home runs, and 7 goodbye home runs from 2 outs are major records. By the way, 11th place Thailand is Dick Allen, Harold Baines, Barry Bonds, Adam Dunn, Jason Giambi, Reggie Jackson, Mike Schmidt, Sammy Sosa. The name of Bonds, who hit 762 home runs, the most in history, finally appears here.
