2022 IBWAA Hall of Fame Ballot Results: “Big Papi” Elected

Yesterday, the Internet Baseball Writers Association of America (IBWAA) announced the results from their 2022 Hall of Fame Ballot.

Today we have the press release and the complete voting results!


IBWAA Hall of Fame Announcement

Here are the results of the IBWAA’s annual HOF election.

The Internet Baseball Writers Association of America (IBWAA) announces one new inductee to its Hall of Fame this year: David Ortiz. This is the IBWAA’s 13th annual election for these awards. All IBWAA members were eligible to vote.

Ortiz was named on 104 out of the 131 ballots cast (79%). Eight other players exceeded 50%, led by Billy Wagner with 66%. A 75% threshold is required for election. Barry Bonds (2018) and Rogers Clemens (2018) did not appear on the ballot because they have already been elected by the IBWAA in previous years. With those exceptions, the IBWAA ballot was similar to the one used by the BBWAA. Complete voting results are listed below.

The IBWAA endeavors to serve the baseball writing community, representing more than 700 baseball content creators. We strive to increase visibility, networking, and opportunities for all of our members. Voting for full season awards takes place in September of each year, with selections announced in November. The IBWAA holds a Hall of Fame election in December of each year, with results announced the following January. Additionally, IBWAA members participate in preseason predictions and All-Star Game elections.

Association membership is open to any and all Internet baseball writers and content creators. For more information please visit


Daniel R. Epstein and Jonathan Becker Co-Directors, IBWAA

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

"Scattering The Ashes has all the feels. Paul Russell Semendinger's debut novel taps into every emotion. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll reexamine those relationships that give your life meaning." — Don Burke, writer at The New York Post

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
