The Hall of Fame has announced the candidates on both ballots, and once the veterans committee votes next month, the results will be released.

Well today is the day the results are supposed to be announced. I am curious about a few things this time around. Seems like a lot of people think this is the year Gil Hodges will get in. Buck O'Neil is on the Early Era ballot, as well. I'm rooting hard for him.

Thanks for the bump, Sunny, because as you know by now, Gil Hodges and Buck O'Neil both made it in!--along with several others. I'm concerned that inducting too many may water it down.

Now, not five years ago, ten years ago, 20 years ago, is the time for No. 14 to be retired. I'm thankful the Dodgers stuck to their guns on that! Smile

Bet our old friend GilHodgesFan is excited.

Congratulations to the new inductees.

That's true! Congratulations to them all. I do question some being borderline. I've heard the theory that they inducted more because the Hall has been hurting financially over the pandemic. So this would be like an induction bonanza of old timers. Tony Oliva and Jim Kaat are both still alive.

Yes, I was thinking about her too, and congratulations to the new Hall of Famers.
