With the Hall Of Fame election announcement coming on January 9, 2013, it is time to review the ballot, go over the names, and decide who belongs in the Hall Of Fame.
There are twenty four men on the ballot for the first time 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 2013 menu at the top of the page.
In this article, we take a look at Julio Franco
Franco enjoyed an extremely long career that spanned 23 seasons in the major leagues, playing for 8 different teams. During his long career, Franco would win five Silver Slugger Awards and appear on three All Star rosters after finishing second for the Rookie Of The Year award in 1983.
