Hall of 100: 2015 ballot results

Two years ago, when ESPN unveiled the inaugural version of the Hall of 100, our panel of experts was asked to vote on a ballot that featured more than 300 names -- every player in the Hall of Fame, those on that year's Hall of Fame ballot, and any player active or retired who reached the greatness above replacement (GAR) threshold. (For more on GAR, check out the Hall of 100's full methodology.)

Since then the Hall of 100 has been updated annually with a ballot that includes active players who reached our qualifying threshold. This year the ballot had 14 players, including Alex Rodriguez, who didn't play in 2014 but is still considered active because he will return to the playing field in 2015.

Last year Miguel Cabrera was the lone new inductee into the Hall of 100. This year, however, no players were inducted. Other than some jockeying for position among the four active players already in the Hall of 100, Felix Hernandez joined the honorable mentions at No. 114, showing promise that he could enter the Hall of 100 with at least one more stellar season.

(Note: GAR is based only on performance in MLB, and it is possible for a player to qualify one year and not the next. In other words, players who have yet to hit their decline phase may lower their GAR over the years if their performance falls off precipitously. These two factors are the main reasons that Ichiro -- who spent much of his prime playing in Japan -- just missed qualifying.)
