The National Baseball Hall of Fame released their 2020 Modern Baseball Era ballot, and three former Yankees have made the cut in Thurman Munson, Don Mattingly, and Tommy John.
First, for those that don't know what this particular ballot is, the Hall of Fame has multiple ballots for players that missed out on their chances in the original ballot. There is also the Early Baseball (Prior to 1950), Golden Days (1950-1969), and Today's Game (1988 to present) ballots.
Munson quickly became a fan favorite with the Yankees when he won the AL Rookie of the Year Award in 1970, and he would put together the accolades to be considered for the Hall soon there after. He played all 11 seasons in pinstripes, with a .292/.346/.410 slash line with 113 career homers and 701 RBI. He made seven All-Star teams, six of which came in consecutive seasons from 1973-1978.
