The National Baseball Hall of Fame announced David Ortiz as the only new member in the Class of 2022 as all other players on the ballot received less than 75%. Todd Helton took another step closer to Cooperstown by appearing on 52.0% of ballots from the Baseball Writers’ Association of America.
Writers from Purple Row and RoxPile – Justin Wick, Noah Yingling and Kevin Henry – discuss the mixed messages sent by voters and predict what year Helton may earn enshrinement.
