The countdown begins.
Finding out who will be the Super Bowl champs? No. Finding out if the Cavs. Oh, never mind.
The only accomplishment that we can look out for the Cavs is if they will finish with the worst record in the NBA this season.
With Tribe Fest this past weekend and Spring Training only a month away, I am counting down to baseball being here! Baseball brings optimism, families together, and eventually great weather. I started to reminisce about the former Tribe teams and their impact in Cleveland.
One of the most popular and essential players in Tribe history is Omar Vizquel.
Vizquel is on the Hall of Fame ballot for the second year after securing 37% of the vote in his first year of eligibility. That is considerably short of the 75% required to be recognized as a Baseball Hall of Famer. This level of support normally doesn’t designate a fast track to Cooperstown.
So, is Vizquel a Hall of Famer?
