2001 Baseball Hall of Fame Ballot

On December 1, 2000, the Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA) began voting for future inductees into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The ballot below is an actual example of the one used by writers during the election and it had to be returned by December 31, 2000. Election results will be announced on January 11, 2001.

The ballot contained the names of thirty-two eligible candidates including players who received at least 5% of the ballots cast in 2000, and first year players that are selected by a screening committee and designated by a '+' next to their name on the sample ballot.

"Lou Gehrig stood in front of a packed house at Yankee Stadium, and I think I heard him say he was the luckiest man in the world to be standing there. I'm here to tell Lou Gehrig, the Iron Horse, that tonight (09-07-1996), Kirby Puckett is the luckiest man in the world." - Kirby Puckett


After the votes are counted, anyone who receives 75% of the ballots cast will be enshrined into the National Baseball Hall of Fame !

Members of the Baseball Writers Association of America must have at least ten years experience writing about baseball and may vote for a maximum of ten candidates, but do not need to select that amount!

Who would you have chosen? Are there "locks" on this list? Are there players who do not belong on the ballot at all? Share your opinion on our message boards !
