Baseball traditionally has one of the most difficult Halls of Fame to get into, and that looks like it’s going to be the case in 2023.
Thus far, Fred McGriff is the sole representative of the Class of 2023 by a committee vote, with Scott Rolen and Todd Helton looking like the only possibilities via BBWAA votes in this class.
The Baseball Hall of Fame will be announcing the votes on Tuesday, and the rampant speculation about who if anyone will be voted in can be put to rest.
Here’s what to know about this year’s 2023 Baseball Hall of Fame induction.
When is baseball’s Hall of Fame announcement for 2023?
- Date: Tuesday, Jan. 24
- Time: 6 p.m. ET
The Baseball Hall of Fame announcement for the Class of 2023 will begin at 6 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Jan. 24 when it will be determined who, if anyone, will enter the hall via votes.
What channel is the Hall of Fame announcement?
- TV channels: MLB Network
- Live stream: Facebook, fuboTV
The 2023 announcement ceremony for the Baseball Hall of Fame will be broadcast on MLB Network. There will be a simulcast on Facebook anchored by Brian Kenny, Greg Amsinger, and Lauren Shehadi. The show can be streamed on fuboTV, which offers a free trial.
Who are this year’s Hall of Fame candidates?
There are 28 candidates for this year’s Hall of Fame vote.
Todd Helton and Scott Rolen are the top choices to potentially make it in via vote this year, with Ryan Thibodaux’s unofficial ballot tracker showing Helton at 80.1 percent and Rolen at 79 percent Tuesday morning. However, that is with fewer than 50 percent of the ballots known.
Players must appear on 75 percent of the ballots cast to be elected and must get at least 5% of the votes to stay on the ballot for next year.
