Concepcion on HOF ballot

Reds great and former shortstop Davey Concepcion is getting another crack at the Hall of Fame. Concepcion is one of 12 former players and managers that are on the HOF’s expansion era ballot.

Click here for the details in a story by Barry Bloom.

There is a 16-member committee and the results will be announced on Dec. 9, during the Winter Meetings in Orlando. A candidate needs to receive at least 75 percent of the vote to be elected. On this committee, that’s 12 votes. Members can vote for a maximum of five candidates.

As the human vacuum cleaner on the big red machine, it is CRIMINAL that Davey C. is not a member of the HOF….. His defensive skills were spectacular on the fast astro turf…. Hi one hop throws to first base redefined defense in the Astro turf era. T2

I agree . Davey Concepcion deserves to be in the HOF. He was certainly better than many that are.
