2010 SBN Hall of Fame Results Announced

New, comments

Back in December SB Nation Baseball writers submitted their ballots for a mock Hall of Fame election. With the actual MLB announcement only a couple of days away, it is time for SBN Baseball to make their announcement. Fifty-two ballots were submitted, making 39 votes the threshold to make the Hall of Fame. Only one player reached that number and with plenty of votes to spare. This pitcher finished 27th all-time in wins with 287 and 5th all-time in strikeouts with 3,701. He threw 242 complete games and 60 shutouts. He finished in the top 10 for AL Cy Young four times and made two All-Star games. He is also the most famous Dutch-born baseball player. SBN Hall of Fame voters selected Bert Blyleven as their first inductee for their virtual Cooperstown.
