Who’s Cooperstown-bound in 2019?

It’s Hall of Fame season once again.

The Baseball Hall of Fame has released its ballot for the 2019 induction season. It’s a top-heavy ballot, meaning that the recent spate of large classes may well continue. There are some new names that will get a lot of attention and a few holdovers that might be ready to make the leap.

As far as the newcomers go, there are four that will likely be at the forefront of the conversation. Yankees closer Mariano Rivera has joined the ballot for the first time, as has his longtime teammate Andy Pettitte. Starting pitcher Roy Halladay, who passed away tragically last year, and first baseman Todd Helton round out the truly notable first-timers. Two are likely enshrinees; two will be on the outside looking in.
