Is there any Baseball Hall of Fame material currently on the Boston Red Sox? A look at some potential candidates for future HOF induction.
The Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is a stockpile of great players whose accomplishments resonate today. Cy Young, Ty Cobb, Ted Williams, and Willie Mays represent the incomparable. There is also a secondary list of players. Elmer Flick? Bill Mazeroski? Candy Cummings? They are all in the HOF. Maybe add a secondary section named almost good enough?
There are several players currently collecting enough money to put them in the one-percent of the one-percent and they will eventually be in the Hall of Fame. C.C. Sabathia is most likely a lock now that he is retired. Others are building up an extensive resume of accomplishments which is necessary since longevity is an important factor.
But who on the Boston Red Sox can make that trip to the induction ceremonies? Who is on the cusp?
The Red Sox have many former players in the HOF – same played their entire career in Boston and others, such as Luis Aparicio, finished out their careers with the Red Sox. Now, a look at those on the current roster with a solid chance at the HOF.
