As you hopefully know, since March 7, voting has been open to select two individuals as the St. Louis Cardinals’ first-ever Hall of Fame fan-selected class of modern era players. That includes those who retired within the last 40 years.
Fan voting has just a few days remaining, closing on April 22 at cardinals.com/HOF. The two winners for 2014 will be announced shortly after, with the formal induction ceremonies scheduled on Saturday, August 16.
Though a case could be made for any of the eight, I readily admit that my analysis and discussion among the Red Ribbon Committee members led me to favor two over the others. Based on interim voting results announced by the Cardinals, however, my preferred candidates are running second and fourth, respectively.
In a recent discussion with the Cardinals’ Brian Finch, who manages the Hall voting process for the club’s ownership, we covered the ballot, the voting, what comes next and much more. We also cover how two others may join the fan ballot winners and enter the team’s Hall this summer.
