MHS Grad on 2014 MLB Hall of Fame Ballot 11/27/13
The National Baseball Hall of Fame has released its ballot for 2014, and making the list for the first time is former MHS graduate Mike Timlin.
Timlin is one of 19 new candidates in a group that is definitely pitcher heavy.
The former bulldog is a four-time World Series Champion: twice with the Toronto Blue Jays (1992, 1993) and twice with the Boston Red Sox (2004, 2007). He also received the Lou Gehrig Memorial Award in 2007, which is given to a player for character and integrity on and off the field.
The right-hander spent 18 years in the majors and finished his career in 2008 with a 75-73 record, 3.63 ERA and 141 saves.
Other notable first-timers on this year's ballot include pitchers Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine.
