1999, New Candidates

1999 New Candidates

We are rolling out the red carpet for this year's galaxy of first-time stars.

We are rolling out the red carpet for this year’s galaxy of first-time stars.

Now this is a star-studded affair! Two 3,000 hit men, a 300 game winner, and one of history’s greatest catchers. The rest of the cast ain’t bad either. Frank Tanana won 240 games and Dale Murphy was a two-time MVP. It’s our most impressive ballot since 1989 (Bench, Jenkins, Perry, Yaz) and until 2007 (Cone, Gwynn, McGwire, Ripken) or 2011 (Bagwell, Brown, Palmeiro, Walker).

Personally, 1999 was an even better year for Eric. He took a job with the company he’s been with ever since and once there soon met his bride to be. Awwww. Of course, that’s bad news for Mrs. Eric. She married down.
