Can you point me to the Pete Rose exhibit, please?
I know what you're thinking. You're wondering just what does one have to do in order to qualify to be eligible to be voted into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame. Wonder no more, sparky.
1. A baseball player must have been active as a player in the Major Leagues at some time during a period beginning twenty (20) years before and ending five (5) years prior to election.
2. Player must have played in each of ten (10) Major League championship seasons, some part of which must have been within the period described in 3 (A).
Player shall have ceased to be an active player in the Major Leagues at least five (5) calendar years preceding the election but may be otherwise connected with baseball.
3. In case of the death of an active player or a player who has been retired for less than five (5) full years, a candidate who is otherwise eligible shall be eligible in the next regular election held at least six (6) months after the date of death or after the end of the five (5) year period, whichever occurs first.
4. Any player on Baseball's ineligible list shall not be an eligible candidate.
