There is a major change going forward with the Baseball Hall of Fame in regards to their Era Committees.
Eras have been reduced to two, the Contemporary Baseball Era, consisting of the period from 1980 to present day, and the Classic Baseball Era, covering the period before 1980. The Contemporary Baseball Era will be split in two separate ballots, one for players and one for managers, executives and umpires.
These Era Committees will rotate annually, with each ballot consisting of eight candidates. The Contemporary Baseball Players will be up first.
As always, we will be paying attention!
