Good move? Baseball Hall of Fame to cut number of voters; need to be active within last 10 years

I have mixed emotions about this.

First, the news from the Hall:

*******

On the one hand, it definitely was time to evaluate who is voting for the Hall. The list includes voters who haven’t covered the game in decades, not just years.

However, the move will eliminate voters who did put their time in way back when, earning the right to vote for the Hall. They still avidly follow the game.

Still, it will be good for the Hall and the BWAA to review who exactly is voting and whether that person is qualified.

The voting ranks for many big awards and honors needs to be reduced. They have become too bloated with too many voters who aren’t qualified. Next up should be the Heisman.
