2019 Bronx Bomber Ball mock Hall of Fame voting results


Along with being Yankee enthusiasts, the staff here at BBB is comprised of avid baseball fans across the entirety of the sport. With that being said, we decided to complete a mock Hall of Fame voting using the 2019 candidates. Similar to the official voting, our ballots could only comprise of up to ten candidates, but choosing less than ten candidates was surely an option. Any player with a mark above 75% would be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, if the voting rested in our hands. Here are the results of the eleven ballots casted:

Mussina made it for the second consecutive year. The largest vote increase was Billy Wagner who gained 30% more of the vote this year. The largest drop was Manny Ramirez who went from 25% to 9%. Notable players who would fall off the ballot are Edgar Martinez (last year on the ballot), Jeff Kent and Lance Berkman.
