I wasn't clear - I like the nomination process and the vetting by the committee. I'd prefer the hat to the third step, the voting.


For some of the candidates it is like splitting hairs, they are difficult to differentiate. May as well pull names out in those instances.

Please not give up on the HOVG. When I joined, I nominated George Kunz every year and many times he didn’t even reach the final 20, but he is finally in. As someone who was born in 1970, I have voted for players who saw as a child and growing up, yes (I have a picture with Everson Walls, who was one of my favorite players of the 80s and I voted him when he became eligible last year) but I also nominated and voted for Youngstrom, Emerson and Latone, amongst others pre-50s players.

Agree. Continue to nominate guys who are deserving. When the same names continue to be on the ballot, it signifies there is a push for them to get in.

Latone is a finalist again this year. I feel like he is one of the top candidates. My guess is he will be elected.
