My 2017 ballot

RECENT VOTING: Last year, Ken Griffey Jr. and Mike Piazza made up the 2016 HOF class. In 2015, Randy Johnson, John Smoltz, Pedro Martinez and Craig Biggio made up the class of inductees into Cooperstown, New York. In 2014, a star-studded class included Bobby Cox, Joe Torre, Tony La Russa, Tom Glavine, Frank Thomas and Greg Maddux.

Any candidate receiving 75 percent of the total vote on this year's ballot will join Bud Selig and John Schuerholz (Today's Game Era inductees) on the podium in July.

The 2018 class will be headlined by newcomers Chipper Jones and Jim Thome.
