Reporter Yoon-Jun Ko = The 2023 Hall of Fame inductee voting is over. Attention is already focused on the upcoming 2024 nominations.
The Baseball Hall of Fame announced the results of a vote conducted by the Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA) on the 25th (Korean time), and ‘Legend Third Baseman’ Scott Rolen was the only one named with 76.3% of the votes. Another leading candidate, Todd Helton, was unfortunately promised next year with 72.2%. 먹튀검증
Now, in the United States, they are paying attention to the upcoming 2024 Hall of Fame candidates. Starting with Helton, new members participate in the vote, starting with Alex Rodriguez, Andrew Jones, Gary Sheffield, and Billy Wagner.
The most notable player is Adrian Beltre. Beltre played 21 years in the major leagues, batting average 0.286, 477 homers, 3,166 hits, 1,707 RBI, OPS 0.819, and won 4 All-Stars, 5 Gold Gloves, 4 Silver Sluggers, and 2 Platinum Gloves.
He is the only player to record 3,000 hits and 450 home runs at the same time among players who played more than 50% of his games as a third baseman. He seems to be able to enter the first turn well enough.
Another notable player is Joe Mauer. Mauer recorded a career batting average of 0.306, 143 home runs, 923 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.827, and it is often evaluated that it is difficult with cumulative stats. However, he showed off tremendous short-term performances such as MVP, 6 All-Stars, 3 Gold Gloves, 5 Silver Sluggers, and 3 hitting kings, and opinions are emerging that he may narrowly pass after the 7th year.
Others include Chase Utley, David Wright, Matt Holliday, Adrian Gonzalez, Jose Batista, and Jose Reyes. Players known to fans such as James Shields, Brandon Phillips, Victor Martinez, Brad Ziegler and Jim Johnson are expected to be nominated.
