First, y'all have been great helping me review and ultimately induct Fun-Time Baseball Hall members. Every so often, from any given franchise, a name slips past me thus the nomination process is invaluable.
So, many thanks for playing along. I've enjoyed doing research on both the old-timers and newer generation players. Learning more about the game's history is the whole point of this for me.
But, without a doubt, the FTBH is wholly dependent on you - the world of blogging card collecting nerds.
Hey, that's no way to get votes, fella!
Oops, sorry, but I'm saying I'm a nerd too, so it's OK, right?
Next up, we'll turn our attention back to a more storied franchise - the Cleveland Indians. Perhaps the voting will pick back up after a pretty "meh" response to the San Diego Padres.
In the comments, please provide a few names of players from the Indians history (anyone who's been away from the franchise at least three full seasons - thus no Jim Thome).
Reminder: I'm looking for players who easily should make an All-Star franchise squad - strong players who spent many years with the franchise or perhaps even players who didn't spend many years but made a lasting impact in a short time.
I hold the right to make the final call on whether a player is placed on the ballot. I simply can't include everyone. I will limit the first-year ballot to 12 to 15 and then the top seven players will be elected to the Indians ' Hall given the FTBH's rules based on year of the franchise's formation.
Meanwhile, voting for the Padres has picked up but still trails our previous votes by quite a few. If you haven't had a chance, please vote.
