Fish Stripes has started building our own Marlins Hall of Fame. The inaugural class of 2020 will be comprised of players who had a powerful, lasting impact on the franchise and fanbase. Our staff narrowed it down to 22 candidates; now, we are inviting you to vote on which of these former Marlins players deserve to be enshrined.

To be eligible for the HOF, players must either be retired or three calendar years removed from participating in their most recent Marlins game. Another restriction put in place for this particular year: players must have been active for the Marlins in at least three separate MLB seasons. However, the ballot allows for voters to submit write-ins—please use that space if you feel strongly about a player’s candidacy so that we know to reconsider them in 2021.

Candidates have different thresholds to be elected based on whether they are most closely associated with the Florida Era of Marlins baseball—prior to 2012—or the Miami Era (names listed below with *). The Florida threshold is 70%, whereas the Miami one is 85% to guard against recency bias and to account for the much smaller batch of eligibles. There is no limit on how many candidates you can vote for.

Please spread the word! The more fan ballots we receive, the more those results will be weighted in the overall process.

The deadline to submit fan ballots is Sunday, April 19 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
