Manny, Tek, Wake Among 19 Hall Of Fame Newcomers

Manny Ramirez, Jason Varitek, and Tim Wakefield are among the nineteen new players added to the 2017 National Baseball Hall Of Fame ballot. Other newly-named players with Carmine Hose affiliations are: Edgar Renteria, Orlando Cabrera, Matt Stairs, Mike Cameron, J.D. Drew and Freddy Sanchez. It's highly unlikely that any of the new Sox-related players will gain enshrinement in 2017—but it is amazing how many former Boston players are eligible next year. For example, joining the 'newbies' and returning on the ballot will be: Roger Clemens and Curt Schilling.
