MARIANO RIVERA ~ HALL OF FAME INDUCTION
Mariano Rivera, Roy Halladay, Edgar Martinez and Mike Mussina are being elected to the Hall of Fame. Join us to see history in the making!
Rivera’s legacy is that of the best reliever of all time as well as the first player to ever receive 100 percent of the vote. He finished his 19-year career with 652 saves, 13 All-Star Game appearances, five Rolaids Relief Awards, five World Series titles, and MVP Awards from an All-Star Game, ALCS, and World Series. Rivera was as dominant, reliable, and likable as any pitcher we’ve seen. This was Rivera’s first year on the ballot.
Halladay’s induction will, unfortunately, be of the posthumous sort after he died in a plane crash in November 2017. During a 16-year career, he won two Cy Young Awards and received the nod in eight All-Star Games. He also won 203 games and figures to be remembered as one of the last true workhorses thanks in part to his 250-inning season in 2010. As with Rivera, this was Halladay’s first year on the ballot. He received 85.4 percent of the votes.
Mussina probably should’ve been voted in earlier, but he’ll join his former teammate Rivera on what was his sixth try. He never won a Cy Young Award, but he did claim seven Gold Gloves and make five All-Star Games during his 18-year career. He won 270 games and finished with more than 3,500 career innings. He received 76.7 percent of the votes.
At last there’s Martinez, the lone position player inductee. He earned entrance on his 10th and final try after facing a long road thanks to his association as a DH. Martinez was a seven-time All-Star and five-time Silver Slugger who also won a pair of batting titles. He hit .312/.418/.515 (147 OPS+) with 309 home runs over parts of 18 seasons. He too received 85.4 percent of the votes.
