Can Gary Sheffield, who is familiar with ‘Park Chan-ho’s helper’, enter the Hall of Fame (HOF)?
On the 25th (Korean time), MLB.com, the official website of the Major League Baseball (MLB), delivered the results of the 2023 Hall of Fame voting and introduced four players who unfortunately did not cross the’passing cut line’. Hall of Fame can only be entered if it exceeds 75% of the vote in the ballot press association (BBWAA). A total of 10 challenge opportunities. In the 2023 vote, Scott Rolen (76.3% of the vote) was the only one who met the qualifications for entry. On the other hand, Todd Helton (72.2%), Billy Wagner (68.1%), and Andrew Jones (58.1%) fell short of the cutoff in the second place in the vote. However, it is considered a matter of time for the three players to enter the Hall of Fame as there are opportunities to challenge as little as 2 times and as many as 5 times in the future. 메이저놀이터
It is Sheffield that attracts attention. Sheffield received 214 out of 389 votes, with a share of 55%. Starting with 11.7% of the vote for the first time in 2015, he stayed with 10% of the vote for five consecutive years. Variables are opportunities. Sheffield, who has already been voted nine times, is the last vote to be in the Hall of Fame for next season. It is not an easy problem because you have to raise 20%p at once. MLB.com said, ‘Sheffield’s share of the vote rose from 11.1% in 2018 to 55%. Next year will be the last chance, and a big jump in 2023 could shake some voters,’ he predicted.
Sheffield is a legend with a batting average of 0.292, 509 homers, and 1676 RBIs in his MLB career (22 years). He boasts a brilliant individual career, including being selected as an All-Star 9 times and winning the Silver Slugger Award 5 times. In particular, Park Chan-ho also shot a personal record of 43 home runs as a teammate of the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2020, when he won the most 18 wins in a single season. That year, along with Eric Carros (31 home runs), Todd Hundry and Sean Green (24 home runs) and Adrian Beltre (20 home runs), he was a key resource who kept the center of the batting line. He scored RBIs in every chance and made his name known as ‘Park Chan-ho’s helper’.
