1960s Blog Hall of Fame (#1)

Welcome to the first 1960s Hall of Fame balloting. (Yes, I ripped off this idea from White Sox Cards, and tailored it to my blog.)

To jump start the membership, for this first ballot, vote for 1 player at each position (except for 3 outfielders, 4 starting pitchers, 2 relievers, and 2 managers). To keep things organized, there is a separate poll for each position.

Subsequent ballots will have all nominees combined on one ballot, and only those getting a certain percentage of votes will be elected.

Voting will continue until January 15th, at which time the winners will have their plaques (a/k/a baseball cards) featured together in a montage post.

Unlike all other halls of fame, balloting will probably occur more than once a year (mainly because I'm impatient). Use the comments to suggest other nominees for future ballots.

Have at it!

How about a relief pitcher category? Roy Face, Hoyt Wilhelm, Stu Miller, Dick Radatz, Bill Henry, Don McMahon, Lindy McDaniel, Ron Perranoski, Bob Miller, Ted Abernathy...

Good idea Eric, and a manager category also.

Since each position is a separate poll, I can add these now. (Can't add additional players to an already-voted-on poll though.)
