Steven Marcus' 2016 Baseball Hall of Fame ballot
Newsday's Steven Marcus cast his ballot for the Baseball Hall of Fame Class of 2016. While writers can vote for up to 10 players, Marcus voted for two. Here are the two names he submitted.
KEN GRIFFEY JR.
Ken Griffey Jr., a 13-time All-Star and 10-time Gold Glove winner, played 22 seasons with the Seattle Mariners, Cincinnati Reds and Chicago White Sox. "The Kid" ranks sixth all-time in home runs with 630, and if it weren't for several injury-plagued seasons, he could be higher on the list.
Trevor Hoffman ranks second all-time behind only Mariano Rivera with 601 saves. He had a 2.87 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 18 seasons with the Florida Marlins, San Diego Padres and Milwaukee Brewers.
