Venezuelan players seek immortality

The Baseball Museum opened the process to meet the exalted in the class of 2022

A total of 46 candidates appear on the ballot for induction to the Hall of Fame of the Venezuelan Baseball, in which the Baseball Museum, located in Valencia (Car) opened its voting process and will run until next Monday, August 15.

There are several names of former Venezuelan baseball players, except for the presence of Tom Evans, considered one of the best imports in the history of Venezuelan baseball, who will seek immortality in this edition and who are part of a difficult choice for the journalists who are part of its voting members.

Melvin Mora, once a star of the Navegantes del Magallanes, is one of the figures that adorn this class of 2022. His fierce offensive shown in the mid-90s and that led the "Nave Turca" to win title against Leones del Caracas , give him merits to join the Temple of the Immortals.

Another who will seek to join the select group of hotheads in Venezuela is Tomás Pérez. With 1.010 hits in 24 seasons in the LVBP, they catapult him to be one of the favorites to receive the golden ticket.

Likewise, Magglio Ordóñez and Johan Santana, despite not having a good number of seasons in Venezuela, what they did in the Major Leagues during their careers will weigh in this process of voting for the Hall of Fame.

Luis Raven will also seek that long-awaited ticket to immortality, based on the Most Valuable Player award for the 1998-1999 season with Pastora de los Llanos, in addition to his 94 career home runs and 401 RBIs. Other names that are part of this election are Álex Cabrera, Antonio Álvarez and Ramón Hernández.
