The sponsoring body of the Indiana Baseball Hall of Fame is the Indiana High School Baseball Coaches Association, IHSBCA, which has served the baseball coaches of Indiana since 1971. The first inductions were in July 1979, and as of 2015 there are currently 184 inductees in the hall of fame in four categories: pro-player, coach-manager (high school, college, pro), contributor and veteran. The veteran is selected by a committee of retired or long-time coaches. All other inductees must receive 65% of total votes cast by IHSBA member coaches.
But technically, Griffey isn’t a Hall of Famer yet and won’t be until the induction ceremony this summer. I also like seeing how probable inductees do in the voting here.
Griffey may have finished fifth in total votes, though he’s the only player of the 25 to have 100 percent of his voters say he belongs in the Hall of Fame. Griffey also got the most votes saying he belongs in Cooperstown. Neither of those things affects Griffey’s ranking in this project, but they befit one of the most beloved players in baseball history.
