Thank you to everyone who signed this petition over the years. This petition is now closed. Results are pending. We'll share a formal status when the ballot is announced.
This petition calls for the Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA) Historical Overview Committee to honor the memory of former Major League Baseball Outfielder Roger Maris by selecting him as one of the 10 candidates on the Golden Days Committee's ballot to be considered for election to the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
Up until his premature death at age 51 on December 14, 1985, Roger Eugene Maris was a treasured, loyal & caring friend, and a terrific teammate. He showed tremendous and admirable courage during his career and throughout his life, playing the game he loved with heart and soul. The person he was on and off the field defines heroism. That’s the kind of athlete the Hall of Fame needs right now. Elect Roger Maris the player and Roger Maris the man.
We, the undersigned, call on the BBWAA Historical Overview Committee to honor the memory of former former Major League Baseball Outfielder Roger Maris by selecting him as one of the 10 candidates on the Golden Days Committee's ballot in 2021 to be considered for election to the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
By signing this, we're agreeing that we believe Roger Maris should be enshrined in the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2022.
