Talk:Hall of Fame
From BR Bullpen
Proposed move to Baseball Hall of Fame (or even [[National Baseball Hall of Fame]] as the museum in Japan is also known by that name) and to disambiguation page as we have seven or eight pages that could claim the title of "Hall of Fame" or its spanish equivalent "Salón de la Fama". --MichaelEng (talk) 11:33, 28 March 2007 (EDT)
I think that 99% of readers would think of Cooperstown when they hear Hall of Fame. Very few people call it the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. - --Mischa 11:58, 28 March 2007 (EDT)
Does anyone have the qualifications to be considered for the Hall? Every year some dolt will write "Travis Fryman? Why is he up for the Hall of Fame?" I'd like to have the numbers that get one's name on the list in the first place.
Would it be appropriate to copy and paste the rules of election on to the page? I know in general we are aganist copy and paste but in a case like this where the specific language can be important. --Biggtone23 17:37, 5 January 2009 (EST)
How about post the link to the qualifications? - --Mischa 19:45, 5 January 2009 (EST)
The length of time a player could stay on the BBWAA ballot has varied throughout history… From 1946- 56, the rule was that a player must have been active at some point in the 25 years prior to the election – it was increased to 30 years from 1956-62, and has been 20 since then - Found this on their around the horn newsletter and havent figured out a way to include it in the article yet. --Biggtone23 19:19, 9 October 2009 (EDT)
