After months of consideration and conversation behind the scenes, I'm proud today to introduce a new joint project among the SBN Wisconsin sites: The SBN Wisconsin Hall of Fame. This year, for the first time, we're coming together to allow you to vote on the greatest athletes, managers and broadcasters in Wisconsin sports history.
Here's how the process will work: This week, we'll nominate ten people to represent baseball in Wisconsin. Those ten will then be placed on the final ballot alongside ten figures selected by each of these communities:
- Acme Packing Company (Packers)
- Anonymous Eagle (Warriors/Eagles/Gold)
- Brew Hoop (Bucks)
- Bucky's 5th Quarter (Badgers)
We'll unveil our final nominees as the month goes along, and I expect the final vote for our first round of inductions to happen in early August.
First, though, I need you to help me select our nominees. After the jump, you'll find a ballot including 67 players, managers, broadcasters and an owner from the Milwaukee Brewers and Braves. Current Brewers are not eligible. Please select up to ten candidates to appear on the final ballot. Voting will remain open until Friday, with the top ten candidates announced in the weeks to come.
Please follow the jump to cast your vote!
(Editor's note: To make room for this project, the Brew Crew Ball Tracking Poll is taking a week off. It'll be back a week from today.)
