Hall of Fame coverage

Last year, Jeter was voted into the Hall on his first BBWAA ballot and Walker on his last. Simmons and late players’ union executive Marvin Miller were voted in by the Modern Baseball Era committee. With the Golden Days and Early Baseball Era Committees having postponed their votes until the winter of 2021-22, the BBWAA ballot was the only means to create a Class of 2021. A player must appear on at least 75 percent of ballots cast to gain entry to the Hall.
