Schilling on Ballot for Baseball Hall of Fame

Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling is one of 37 players listed on the 2013 Hall of Fame ballot.


The Baseball Writers' Association of America has released its 2013 Hall of Fame Ballot which includes former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling.

There are 37 players, including several former Red Sox players, on this year's list. A candidate must be named on 75 percent of the submitted ballots to gain entry into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, says bbwaa.com.

Schilling told ESPN he doesn't give the ballot a second thought because it's out of his hands, and said, "It will be interesting to see how it shakes out," noting that "everybody gets on the ballot after five years of being retired" from baseball.

Here, www.overthemonster.com writer Marc Normandin makes a convincing case for Schilling's nomination.

The results will be announced on Jan. 9, 2013.
