In April, the Fish Stripes community voted on which players to include in our inaugural Marlins Hall of Fame class. The combined staff voting percentages and reader voting percentages were weighted 50% apiece to determine the results. Most players on the ballot—from the “Florida era” of Marlins baseball—required 70% of the overall vote for election; players from the “Miami era,” whose main contributions came since the start of the 2012 season, required 85% support.
This summer, seven extraordinary players will be inducted into the HOF as members of the Class of 2020.
The first-ever Fish Stripes Induction Week is scheduled for Jul. 20-24, at which time we will unveil virtual “plaques” for each player and much more.
