This Circle of Greats (COG) vote is not to induct anyone into the Circle. Instead, this round of voting will select three or more players who will be restored to the secondary ballot after having been previously dropped from eligibility.
In this vote you may include on your ballot any major league baseball player who:
– was born before 1975; and
– played a majority of his career games since 1901 or compiled 20 WAR (as measured by Baseball-Reference) since 1901; and
– has not been elected to the Circle of Greats; and
– was not among the main or secondary ballot holdovers for the last completed round of COG balloting (1974 Part 4 COG Balloting)
For this round of voting, you may vote for up to five (5) five players to cast a qualifying ballot. The players with the 3 highest vote totals, including ties, will be restored to the secondary ballot for the next round of COG voting. To assist you with your selections, career stats for the most eligible candidates are provided here (though you may vote for any qualifying player).
The deadline to cast your ballots in this redemption round is Tuesday night, January 28th at 11:59PM EST. You can change your votes until 11:59PM EST on Sunday night, January 26th. You can keep track of the vote tally in this redemption round here: COG 2020 Redemption Round Vote Tally.
