Hall of Fame Season 18

It’s once again time for the Hall of Fame to announce this year’s inductees. This year’s ballot included several notable players from the early days of this world; however it will be Joey Montgomery that will forever be remembered as the player inducted to the Addicted User HOF in season 18.

Like most awards his selection was somewhat controversial. He seemed to be something of a dark horse with a handful of other players appearing to be shoo-ins. Yet the voters felt that his career numbers were sufficient to surpass his peers and allow him entrance into this very exclusive club.

Montgomery spent 14 seasons in the major’s with time spent in 5 different cities. He enters the Hall wearing the Boise Browncoats cap having spent 7 seasons with them. His talents earned him 8 all star appearances as well as 2 Cy Young awards. Joey was also able to pick up 212 wins with 82 complete games and a 3.96 career ERA.

This year’s ballot seemed to include the names of several future HOF inductees and next years ballot should present an even more difficult selection process for voters as more former stars become eligible for induction.
