FanSided polled the MLB site experts for our 2020 Mock MLB Hall of Fame vote and only one player got the required percentage of votes.
Back in December, we decided to have our own Mock MLB Hall of Fame voting process to see who the MLB site experts would vote into the MLB Hall of Fame this year.
It was not much of a surprise to see that New York Yankees Captain Derek Jeter was the only player to receive the qualified 75 percent from our group of 42 voters.
You can see the full results of the Mock Hall of Fame voting process here.
About a week ago I released my mock Hall of Fame ballot and gave the reasoning behind my selections.
I only voted for two players on this year’s ballot with Jeter and Andruw Jones getting my vote.
That’s actually pretty interesting and shows maybe that a lot of the younger generation, I’m assuming a lot of our MLB site experts are in their 40’s or younger, are coming around on the steroid era guys.
And it could also be a case of this year’s ballot didn’t have a lot of great names, so maybe that will increase the vote for the suspected steroid users.
Larry Walker is on the ballot for the last time and could see a big boost in support because of that, but he still didn’t meet the mark in our voting.
I was really glad to see my boy Andruw Jones move up to almost 50 percent after barely staying on the ballot with just 7.5 percent of the vote in 2019.
Hopefully the support for the best defensive center fielder of all-time continues and he gets in one day.
The actual MLB Hall of Fame results will be announced on Tuesday, January 21 and don’t be surprised if Jeter is the only named called. Let us know in the comments below who you would vote for in this year’s class.
