Los Angeles Angels: 4 former players make Hall of Fame ballot
By Seth Carlson
The 2021 baseball Hall of Fame ballot is out, with some former LA Angels making the cut.
Did you think election season ended after November 3rd? If so, you are mistaken.
With the news of the 2021 Hall of Fame ballot release on Monday, it’s once again time for the members of the BBWAA to vote on the next group of baseball immortals.
The candidates for potential induction include holdovers from last year such as Barry Bonds, former Angel Bobby Abreu, Omar Vizquel, Curt Schilling and many others.
Though the Angels are poorly represented in the group of players returning to the ballot for further Hall consideration, they’re decently represented among ballot newcomers for 2021.
Perhaps the names Dan Haren, LaTroy Hawkins, Torii Hunter and Shane Victorino ring a bell? For Angels fans, some of these former players may resonate more than others.
Each of these players’ respective tenures with the Halos varied in length and productivity. Let’s re-evaluate their careers in red and white and their Hall of Fame prospects.
