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 Vinny Castilla
Castilla spent most of his 16 year career manning third base. Though he debuted in 1991 with the Atlanta Braves, Castilla was most known for his time with the Colorado Rockies, the team he would eventually end his career with in 2006. This will be the first time he appears on the Hall Of Fame ballot.
