Cast Your Vote: What Hat Should Gary Sheffield Wear Into Cooperstown??

Cast Your Vote:  What Hat Should Gary Sheffield Wear Into Cooperstown??

Hardly publicized at all, Gary Sheffield announced his retirement from professional baseball in late February.

And while we have seen several sluggers from this era not get the call to Cooperstown, you cannot argue with the resume Sheffield has put together.

So, let’s all just assume that Gary Sheffield does get into the Hall of Fame.

OK?  OK!

The next and most obvious question would be: “What hat would you select for him to wear on his plaque?”

So that is now my question to you…  And to make things a bit easier for you, I put together this table of stats so you can look at his achievements at the team level.

Here are the numbers:

  Brewers Padres Marlins Dodgers Braves Yankees Tigers Mets
Hits 287 260 538 583 341 381 225 74
Average 0.258 0.319 0.288 0.312 0.319 0.291 0.247 0.276
HR’s 21 43 122 129 64 76 44 10
RBI 133 136 380 367 216 269 132 43
Runs 138 121 365 358 208 243 159 44
Steals 43 10 74 43 30 20 31 2
All-Star 0 2 1 2 1 2 0 0
Batting Titles 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
Gold Glove 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
Silver Slugger 0 1 1 0 1 2 0 0
MVP 0 3rd 6th 9th 3rd 2nd 0 0
WS Title 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0

So, with this ammunition in your arsenal, where do you lean on the subject??  I have my opinions, but I will hold them until you give me yours first…

Let me know!!!

  1. If McGwire doesn’t make it (and I don’t think he should), then neither will Sheffield (and I don’t think he should either).

  2. I’d say Marlins. Just seems right.

  3. He wouldn’t get my vote but if he made it I’d say Marlins.

    moe.

  4. the sewingmachineguy

    The hat that reads; “PRICK”.

  5. Marlins only because he won a WS with them. He had some of the best years of his career with the Yanks though.

  6. When I think of Sheffield, I think Marlins.

  7. The Brewers! LOL
    I agree w/ JT & dont think hes going to make it… hes not a Fan Favorite and was linked to roids. Sorry Sheff!
    Why are we talking about Sheff when we should be talking about Fred McGriff!

  9. I think its going to take Sheff a while before hes inducted… but he should get in. McGriff deserves the HOF more than anyone… right along side of Dale Murphy too.
