The Modern Era Votes are tallied! And your new Hall of Famers are:
That’s it. There were 16 voters, which means a nominee needed 12 votes for election to the Hall of Fame. The voting went as follows:
Ted Simmons, 13 votes (elected)
Marvin Miller, 12 votes (elected)
Dwight Evans, 8 votes
Dave Parker, 7 votes
Steve Garvey 6 votes
Lou Whitaker, 6 votes
Dale Murphy, Tommy John, Thurman Munson, Don Mattingly all received three votes or fewer.
I’ll have lots of thoughts on all this in the weekly newsletter, but I’m opening up this thread for comments and questions.
Congratulations to Simmons and Miller!
