Default HOF "who is in?" thread

Today is the day.

Leaked reports, per The Score, have Frank with 90%+ of the votes. Maddux near 100%.

Good day for Chicago.

Are these actual leaked reports of the final voting, or just the BBTF exit polls we've been seeing for weeks?

I'm not seeing anything elsewhere about leaks.

Over a third of the ballots in, Frank at 89.7%

Should be enough to withstand the non-public imbeciles.

Sammy Sosa at about 8% and McGwire at 11℅, while Frank gets inducted. I love it.

Induction weekend at Cooperstown is the last weekend of July, with the actual ceremony taking place on Sunday, July 27 for anyone planning on making the trip

I'm pumped and counting on Frank to get a plaque. I made reservations for the HOF weekend a few months ago at a motel in Oneonta, NY, about 15 miles south of Cooperstown. My sons and I are planning a HOF road trip.

All systems Go! We're standing by for the formal announcement.

Thomas would be the first player since the veteran’s committee posthumously inducted Nellie Fox in 1997 to go into Cooperstown wearing a White Sox hat (inducted in 2000, Carlton Fisk wore a Red Sox hat). Reinsdorf would love nothing better than for the ‘Big Hurt’ to go into the Hall of Fame alongside former White Sox manager Tony LaRussa.

Seeing Fisk play in the new park looks weird. He should have retired with Comiskey Park closing. He didn't need the games played as a catcher record to get in the Hall. But I digress...

Go Frank!

I'm going to say actually being able to hear the organ after the home run is nice. I'm so ****ing tired of the canned crap that gets played. Then again, I think we all know that Brooks Boyer is pretty terrible at his job.
