Former Yankees first baseman and current Miami Marlins manager Don Mattingly is among 10 people who are on the 2018 Modern Baseball era ballot for possible enshrinement in Cooperstown.
Mattingly joins Steve Garvey, Tommy John, Marvin Miller, Jack Morris, Dale Murphy, Dave Parker, Ted Simmons, Luis Tiant and Alan Trammell whose candidacy will be reviewed and voted upon at the Winter Meetings on Dec. 10.
The Modern Baseball Committee consists of 16 members of the National Baseball Hall of Fame, executives and veteran media members. The committee votes on candidates twice every five years at the MLB Winter Meetings.
Players who are no longer eligible for election by the Baseball Writers' Association of America, managers, umpires and executives whose careers spanned from the 1970 to 1987 era are eligible for election by the Modern Baseball Committee.
Mattingly, 56, hit .307 with 222 home runs, 1,099 RBIs and 2,153 hits in his 14-year career. A six-time All-Star, Mattingly won nine Gold Gloves and the 1985 MVP Award as a member of the Yankees. He was taken off the BBWAA Hall of Fame ballot after recording 9.1 percent of the vote in 2015, his 15th final year on the ballot.
John, 74, played eight years of his 26-year MLB career with the Yankees, going 91-60 with a 3.59 ERA with New York and 288-231 with a 3.34 ERA overall.
