Since six new gamers have been enshrined in Cooperstown over the weekend, so several baseball broadcasts have included talks about the present inductees in addition to potential future inductees. During one specific match, an analyst commended the fact both of their new Hall of Famers spent their whole careers with only 1 team.
He was referring of course to Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones and Detroit Tigers shortstop Alan Trammell.
Jones obtained 410 of 422 votes throughout his initial year of Hall eligibility, while Trammell was chosen by the Veterans Committee.
The point has been made that baseball enthusiasts might not for another decade see a single one-year participant attain Cooperstown, much less two of these. Even the announcer identified two particular potential inductees, Albert Pujols and Adrian Beltre, who have played several unique teams.
A cursory look at other celebrities nearing retirement, but appears to indicate that we'll really soon find another single-player participant. Really, there might be two or more.
Here's a list of probable or highly potential one-team players who may be enshrined in Cooperstown once they depart the area.
Yadier Molina of the St. Louis Cardinals
This man is a no-brainer for Hall of Fame induction in his first year of eligibility, regardless of what his offensive figures are. He's become the highest grossing for two decades, has led the Redbirds to numerous World Series appearanceshave now been chosen as a continuing All-Star,also is still one of the best clutch hitters in all of baseball.
Felix Hernandez of the Seattle Mariners
Final in on his eponymous season King Felix is very likely to collect two hundred wins from the time that he hangs up it, which will be far short of the coveted three hundred markers that promises enshrinement. His age, but makes it almost impossible to secure over fifteen victories each year, so that reality as well as some Cy Young Award and six All-Star games may land him a plaque.
Joey Votto of this Cincinnati Reds
His extended contract virtually makes sure that the Canadian will complete his playing days at Great American Ball Park, and his figures are still coming HOF figures.
Joe Mauer of the Minnesota Twins
The native Minnesotan has diminished as winning the Most Valuable Player Award as Twins catcher, which could harm his chances to get in the Hall. |}Additionally, since he's in the end of his existing contract along with his home town staff, Mauer might be disregarded from this record if he signs elsewhere .
Buster Posey of this San Francisco Giants
Ten years in his career the catcher is a six time All-Star with both a Most Valuable Player and Rookie of the Award, but it could be his three World Series Championships that eventually persuade him to Cooperstown.
