3rd baseman Rolen, both offensive and defensive, succeeded in joining HOF at the end of 6th…A-rod failed for 2 consecutive years

Scott Rolen (48), who made a name for himself as a leading third baseman in the major leagues, has succeeded in entering the Hall of Fame.

The Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA) voted on the 25th (Korean time) to elect an inductee into the Hall of Fame.

In this year’s Hall of Fame induction vote, a total of 28 candidates, including Rolen, were evaluated by BBWAA members. Among them, only Rolen got a ticket to enter the Hall of Fame.

After retiring from active duty at the end of the 2012 season, Rolen challenged to be inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2018. In his first year, he had a high score with only 10.2% of the vote, but the vote rate increased every year, and last year he recorded 63.2%, increasing his chances of joining. He achieved a thrilling Hall of Fame line after 6 moves this year.  카지노

After making his big league debut with the Philadelphia Phillies in 1996, Rolen quickly established himself with a stable defense and precise hitting. He won the National League Rookie of the Year by unanimous decision in the 1997 season, and built a brilliant career, winning 8 Gold Gloves and being selected as an All-Star 7 times.

Rolen’s heyday was with the St. Louis Cardinals (2002-2007). In the 2006 season, he had a batting average of 0.296, 22 homers, and 94 RBIs, contributing to St. Louis’ World Series victory.

With a batting average of 0.281, 2077 hits, 316 homers, 1211 runs, 1287 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.855 in 2038 big league games, there was no shortage of being evaluated as one of the best third basemen in American baseball history. He was the 18th all-time third baseman to experience the joy of being inducted into the Hall of Fame. 

On the other hand, Alex Rodriguez, who was punished for taking a banned substance, bowed his head for the second consecutive year with only 35.7% of the vote. Manny Ramirez also recorded 33.2% of the votes, and it is predicted that it will be difficult to exceed the Hall of Fame entry standard next year.
