The closest Mariano Rivera, assigned striker Edgar Martinez and starters Pitt Roy Hallaide and Mike Musina will be the newest members of the Baseball Hall of Fame. Rivera became the first player to vote unanimously in the hall.
The four were voted in the hall by the Association of Baseball Writers in America on Tuesday. Of the four, Halladay and Mussina were in the first round, although only Mussina has been advertised for fame since the start of her career.
Victory or loss, the unanimous new hall of the family – and the greatest performer of the post-era of all time – Never let him see a sweat. Behind the facade, he blazed.
With a class, highlighted by the first unanimous selection that went to the Hall, we shattered who received the best news – and who received a check of reality – from the Tuesday message.
Prior to Rivera, the highest percentage of the vote belonged to Ken Griffey Jr. in 2016 when he received 99.3% (437 out of 440) ballots. In his last year of voting, Martinez received 85.4%, which led to a late rise in support. He received only 27% four years ago when his election felt like a meaningless opportunity. Halladay, who died in 2017 when the airplane he piloted ran into the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Florida, also received 85.4% of the vote, joining Rivera as the first voice. Musina received 76.7 percent of the vote, clearing the threshold of 75 percent with seven votes. "It was a beautiful, long career," Rivera told the Web Network.
Kurt Schilling received 60.9% of the votes, while Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds continued to make small profits, from 57.3% and 56.4% in 2018 to 59.5% and 59.1%. Three years remain in the ballot. Fred McGriff made a big leap in his final year in the election, but did not reach 39.8% and is now moving to the Veterans Committee.
Rivera, signed for $ 3,000, remains unprotected in the 1993 Expansion Project for a major league as a starter, and is now not only a Hall of Families, but the first player of the Association of Baseball Authors has ever been unanimously elected.
The late Halladay was the first round but once was lost in the big one that had to go back to class A to recover as a pitcher. He is now the hall of the family.
Musina is the 11th round of Montreuxville, Pennsylvania in 1987, but goes to Stanford University, then is the first round of Baltimore Orioles in 1990.
Rivera Martinez and Haladay will join Lee Smith and Harold Bains in the unique Hall of Fame: two athletes, two determined players and a 203-pitcher with at least the start-up pitcher, as the Committee of Veterans chose Ady Joss in 1978 with 160 wins, Quartet:
• Rivera, the greatest record of all time, 652, saves through his 19-year career helped the Yankees win five World Series titles, becoming one of the most iconic players in the history of the franchise. His post-season performance was even more remarkable than his dominating season, ending 8-1 with 0.70 ERA over 96 appearances and 141 innings. He recorded 42 saves from the post-season – 14 of two innings. This is a rescue of two innings than all other gatherers in the suburban area while Rivera was active.
• Martinez spent his entire career with sailors, staying in Seattle and becoming a franchise icon, while other stars – Griffy, Randy Johnson, Alex Rodriguez – left. Martinez won two titles and hit .312 with 309 pets over 18 seasons. He is one of the six players who started their career after World War II to retire with .300 average, .400 percent base and .500 percent hit.
• Halladay finished 203-105 in his career with 3.38 ERA, played 12 seasons with Blue Jays and the last four with Phillies. He won two Cy Young awards, one with each franchise, completing his second twice, throwing a perfect game and throwing no striker for Phyllis in the 2010 series against the Reds. He was one of the last great workers. During his peak from 2003 to 2011, he threw 61 full games – 30 more than 2 (19459024) CC Sabathia.
• Mussina played 18 seasons, 10 with Orioles and eight with Yankees. He produced 270-153 records with 3.68 ERA and 2813 outs. Mussina was five-time All-Star and won seven gold gloves. He never won the Cy Young award, ending second in 1999 behind Boston Pedro Martinez.
Most of all, these three players are a testimony of hard work and perseverance – and even a poor state of affairs. The Yankees have left Rivera, then a Class A player who suffered an elbow injury as set out in the 1993 Enlargement project. It is reported that Marlins will take it, but the Rocky Mountains chose Brad Ausmus, which means that the Yankees could not lose more players. Yankees also traded Rivera to the Mariners after Rivera published 5.51 ERA as a rookie in 1995. Instead, they moved it to bullpen and one day in 1997 while playing with Ramiro Mendoza, the ball suddenly began to move. He has found his famous knife.
"Mariano was a cruel athlete and modest champion, making him a beloved baseball legend," Yankees managing partner Steinbren said. "Success and the star have never changed Mariano, and his respect for the game, the intrigue and his teammates and opponents makes this day a celebration of his inheritance, there will be more great and talented chairs for help but he will never there is another one like him. "
Martinez spends most of the three seasons in Triple-A, hitting 344 over 276 games Sailors would not give him a full-time job When Darnell Coles made a bunch of third- in the early 1990s, Martinez finally got a chance to play, and he hit the .302 in this season and never stopped, exceeding 300 times 10 times, partly because of his big gaze at the saucer, ending regularly with more walks from the outsiders # #EdgarHOF Pittworth of the year 19659093] Seattle Mariners (@Mariners) January 22, 2019
Halladay came to Toronto as a valued prospect and had a 3.92 ERA as He Still collapsed in 2000 and he had one of the worst seasons in the history of the big leagues: 4-7 with 10.64 ERA over 67.2 innings. The next season he returned to the Florida State League, "Blue Jays" hoped that Halodey would be able to fix things enough to trade him. They sent him to Double-A to work with Mel Queen's foot, and they both regained his mechanics – starting the first session, not even allowing Halladay to drop baseball. He returned to the big leagues in July and won his first Cy Young award in 2003.
In a statement, Brandy Halladay, Roy's widow, said the transformation of the Hall of Fame was never his goal. had to be successful each day of her 16-year career, "she said. "This evening's announcement is the ultimate result of that effort." If only Roy was here to express his gratitude for this honor, what would be an even more amazing day. "
The only other player elected to the first posthumous vote was Christie Matthew in 1936. Roberto Clemente was elected by special election in 1973 after his death in a plane crash on December 31, 1972.
