2014 Hall of Fame Ballot – #EdgarHOF

Edgar Martinez is on the Hall of Fame ballot for the fifth time.

Edgar Martinez is on the Hall of Fame ballot for the fifth time.

The Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA) released the names for the 2014 Hall of Fame ballot today. More than 600  members will vote on the prestigious honor to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY.

We are of course biased, but this is also the time of year where we want to share the many honors and accolades of our own Edgar Martinez. One of baseball’s best hitters, Edgar is on the 2013-2014 National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum ballot for the fifth time. Martinez has earned 36.2 percent of the vote in 2010, 32.9 in 2011, 36.5 in 2012 and 35.9 last year.

Pitchers Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Eric Gagne, first baseman-designated hitter Frank Thomas and second baseman Jeff Kent join 17 holdovers (including Edgar) from the 2013 ballot. Writers must return ballots by a Dec. 31 postmark. . The Class of 2014 will be announced Jan. 8. You can watch the announcement live at noon PT on an MLB Network simulcast on MLB.com.

Here is some fun material to browse through to support what we think was a Hall of Fame career for Edgar:

How do we forward this to every HOF voter?

Great Question! We actually make this available to a pretty big list of BBWAA voters. Hard to get in the hands of everyone, but we get it out as best we can. #EdgarHOF!

Edgar deserves to be in the hall of fame

Edgar is a Hall of Famer!!!
