This is Fred McGriff's 8th year on the BBWAA Hall-of-Fame ballot. Last year, he appeared on 20.9% of ballots.

I began writing articles about Hall of Fame candidates with the 2013 Hall-of-Fame ballot (which was released in late 2012), Fred McGriff's fourth year on the ballot. Hence, this is the fifth article which I have written about Fred McGriff.
The next table decomposes Fred McGriff's (context-neutral, teammate-adjusted) Player won-lost record between batting, baserunning, and fielding.

McGriff's Hall-of-Fame case rests entirely on his batting. While McGriff was perhaps "one-dimensional", batting is a very important dimension and McGriff was very good at it: 493 home runs (28th all-time), 4,458 total bases (53rd all-time), 1,305 walks (45th), 1,550 RBI (46th).

The next table, then, shows the top 50 batters since Major-League Baseball was integrated (in 1947).
