Everyone was assuming that Red Sox legend Curt Schilling would start losing ground as more and more Hall Of Fame ballots became publicly-revealed. Well, with 50 ballots now either openly public (49) or anonymous (1), Schilling has actually increased his percentage since the last time we checked. While only 12.1% of the total votes (412) are revealed—it's still noteworthy that Schilling has been in the "induction range" at every milestone so far. At this point, Schilling has been on 37 of the 50 public/anonymous ballots—resulting in 74.0%. All he needs to get to is 75% to be enshrined in Cooperstown. Functionally, that means he has to be on 309 of the 412 ballots when it's all said and done. You can keep track of the latest public HOF count HERE.
