BBWAA Balloting

1988 Willie Stargell, who played his entire 21-year career with the Pirates, is the only person elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame this year. Blank ballots, sent and signed by nine writers wanting to emphasize the need for very exclusive selections, denies Jim Bunning entrance to Cooperstown as he receives less than the 75 percent needed for induction due to the votes which are counted, but do not name any players.
