The 2022 Hall of Fame ballot adds 13 new contenders

The official ballot for the 2022 Hall of Fame voting dropped on Monday afternoon, and while anyone who keeps track of the requirements knew who would be added this year, it’s still a lot of fun to see who the new contenders are, and whether any give the “first ballot” vibe.

There are 13 new contenders this year, but before we jump into who is new, let’s look at who has their last shot at getting in via the BBWAA vote. Previous contenders who are on the ballot for the last time are Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Curt Schilling, and Sammy Sosa.
