Run-off Ballot

As with previous years, a runoff ballot was held with the former player with the most votes - regardless of percentage - gaining induction. Those who had received at least 10 votes the first time around were eligible for the runoff. Though Joe Medwick and Red Ruffing received the same number of votes in the first ballot, Ruffing pulled away to easily win this second ballot. It was Ruffing's 18th attempt!

Votes by members of the BBWAA were tabulated by the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The top vote-getter was automatically in. (Winners in bold.)

Our sites have always been by you and about you. If you check our TV Forums or our Technology & Science forums, you'll find literally thousands of messages from fans of 1970s TV shows, survivors of hurricanes or aircraft accidents, etc. from all over the world sharing their memories, asking questions, making comments. Our baseball section is new, but don't let that stop you from sharing your memories of the first game you went to, your favorite player, a now-forgotten stadium, etc. Of course you can also ask questions, post trivia, tell the world what you think of Barry Bonds, or just read what others are saying.
