MLB: How has Sammy Sosa fared in Hall of Fame voting?

Sammy Sosa He is one of the players who has had the most controversy around his career as a player in the MLB and later on its possible induction into the Hall of Fame. The Dominican is in his last attempt to enter the ‘Precinct of the Immortals’ and here we leave you the how you have done in the voting and the ballots.

The Dominican journalist Héctor Gómez has been given the task of compiling the history of Sammy Sosa in the candidacies he has had for a possible induction into the Hall of Fame. These have been the results.

The first time the Dominican was authorized to enter the ballot was in 2013, the year in which he obtained 71 votes out of 569 possible, that is, 12.5%. This 2021 already has 17.0% that reflect 68 votes.

Voting for the former outfielder has been influenced by the substance abuse (steroids) issue that voters are considering and weighing alongside their numbers.

This cycle is the last in which Sammy Sosa could enter the Hall of Fame according to the guidelines established for it. On the ballots, he is found alongside other figures such as David Ortiz and Barry Bonds.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from minute one and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
