Two Left Fielders Elected by Writers' Ballot
December 2, 2008 - Rickey Henderson and Jim Rice are both on the ballot for the National Baseball Hall of Fame.  It has been 20 years since the Baseball Writers' Association of America has has elected a left fielder into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. However, the 2009 ballot may end this all since there are some very prominent left fielders on the list. 

Henderson is new to the ballot along with 10 others.  Rice on the other hand this is his last chance to be nominated.  Nominees may be on the ballot for 15 years, but they must receive 5% of the votes each year.  Rice has a very good chance of being elected, last year he missed out by only 16 votes.

Don't miss out on the chance to take one of Big League Tours small group tours in the '09 season.  Cooperstown, the National Baseball Hall of Fame, is being offered on five of our baseball travel tours.  Check out our website and see which baseball road trip fits you!
