The BBWAA election

The BBWAA was authorized to elect players active in 1979 or later, but not after 1993; the ballot included candidates from the 1998 ballot who received at least 5% of the vote but were not elected, along with selected players, chosen by a screening committee, whose last appearance was in 1993. All 10-year members of the BBWAA were eligible to vote.


Voters were instructed to cast votes for up to 10 candidates; any candidate receiving votes on at least 75% of the ballots would be honored with induction to the Hall. Results of the 1999 election by the BBWAA were announced on January 5, 1999. The ballot consisted of 29 players; 497 ballots were cast, with 373 votes required for election. Those candidates receiving less than 5% of the vote (25 votes) will not appear on future BBWAA ballots, but may eventually be considered by the Veterans Committee. January 5 is the 5th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ... 1999 (MCMXCIX) was a common year starting on Friday, and was designated the International Year of Older Persons by the United Nations. ...
