With the Hall Of Fame election announcement coming on January 9, 2012, it is time to review the ballot, go over the names, and decide who belongs in the Hall Of Fame.
There are twenty seven men on the ballot this year and we will take a look at each one individually prior to official announcements. You can find all of the profiles in the I-70 Baseball Exclusives: Cooperstown Choices 2012 menu at the top of the page.
Tune in Saturday, January 7, 2012 as I-70 Baseball Radio will host a panel of writers discussing the Hall Of Fame Ballot in a 2-hour special.
In this article, we take a look at Edgar Martinez
Martinez enjoyed an 18 season career and is the poster child for the Designated Hitter. He signed with the Seattle Mariners as an undrafted free agent in 1982, eventually making his debut for the club in 1987. His career would come to a close at the end of the 2004 season at the age of 41. This will be his third year on the ballot for induction.
