So, the Baseball Hall of Fame Slugging 16 is set. In all of the brackets, all of the #1, #2 and #3 seeds moved on, but only one #4 seed moved on. The voting was plentiful and the results showed some interesting trends. Here, broken down by bracket are your Slugging 16. Continue reading
Here is the second part of the second round of MLB HOF March Madness – the Branch Rickey and Casey Stengel brackets.
Baseball Hall of Fame Madness Round 1 is complete, and your votes have been counted. Thank you for all who voted, but as we continue into Round 2 the voting will get more difficult. Earlier today on 85%sports.com, the brackets for Round 2 were posted and the matchups have been announced. Before we look at Round 2, let’s look back at Round 1.
The month of March is here and it is time for the sports madness that occurs each year during this time of the year. For those of us that are baseball fans, the madness is the month of build up, hope, and anticipation as the baseball season is soon to start.
After a recent visit to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum and some conversations about the people enshrined in the Hall of Fame, we at 85% Sports and Inside Pulse Sports are trying to come up with that answer. Who is the top Hall of Famer of all time? We did not think we could answer that question alone, so we turn to you…the baseball world and baseball community for assistance.
Hall of Fame March Madness is here. We have taken the time to select the Hall of Famers that we believe are the Top 68 Hall of Famers of all time. The only factor was that they must have been inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. The selections were not easy and we may not even right in your eyes in our choices and decisions, but we made our selections and we stand by them. We have separated the Famers into four brackets, named for four Hall of Fame managers representing four of the all-time stories franchises: Sparky Anderson (Cincinnati Reds), Leo Durocher (New York/San Francisco Giants), Branch Rickey (Brooklyn/Los Angeles Dodgers) and Casey Stengel (New York Yankees).
Just like that other tournament, we had an additional four Hall of Famers. The extra Famer in each bracket will go head to head with the last ranked player in that bracket. After this opening round is played, the bracket will continue in true form: 1 vs. 16, 2 vs. 15, 3 vs. 14 and so forth. Every time there is a head to head matchup, one Famer moves on and the matchups get harder and harder.
Round one starts now, make your choice and let us all decide who the Top Hall of Famer of All-Time is.
Let the madness begin.
