We learned Wednesday night that The Hall of Fame will have 4 new members. They are outstanding selections:
For the second time in four years but just the fifth time ever in a voting process that dates back to 1936, the Baseball Writers' Association of America is welcoming four players into Cooperstown's hallowed Hall all at once.Jones is one more player from those marvelous Braves' teams who won a dozen or so NL East titles. Guerrero was probably the most consistent hitter in baseball. Thome was a great power hitter but I did not expect him to go in the first time around. Hoffman was long overdue, a great closer!
Chipper Jones, Vladimir Guerrero, Jim Thome and Trevor Hoffman compose the BBWAA's 2018 National Baseball Hall of Fame class, which was announced on Wednesday night on MLB Network and MLB.com.
Jones and Thome were inducted in their first year of eligibility, marking the third time this decade that a BBWAA class includes multiple first-ballot Hall of Famers.
Mike Mussina and Curt Schilling should get more votes next year. They were both great pitchers.
Congratulations to the 4 new members. Great players!
