Last year Bruce Sutter was the only player to receive 75 percent of the vote, the total necessary for induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame. However, four players -- Jim Rice, Goose Gossage, Andre Dawson and Bert Blyleven -- received more than 50 percent of the vote.
With this year's Hall of Fame ballots due on Dec. 31, ESPN.com takes a closer look at the four players in the following order:
Dec. 26 -- Jim Rice
Dec. 27 -- Andre Dawson
Dec. 28 -- Bert Blyleven
Dec. 29 -- Goose Gossage
Are they Hall of Famers? You decide.
