The Baseball Hall of Fame Class of 2021 was announced, except it wasn’t. That is because not a single player received the requisite 75 percent of the votes to be enshrined.

Will next year be different? Back in January 2020, David Schoenfield of ESPN predicted that no first-timers will receive enshrinement for 2022. While that may be true, here are 12 notable players who will be eligible for the Baseball Hall of Fame for the first time in 2022.

(A list of all players who could be included on the 2022 ballot can be found at Baseball-Reference.)

1

Carl Crawford (Rays 2002-10, Red Sox 11-12, Dodgers 13-16)

A four-time All-Star, Crawford led the AL in steals in four of his first five full seasons. He stole 480 bags for his career while falling just shy of 1,000 runs (998).

2

Prince Fielder (Brewers 2005-11, Tigers 12-13, Rangers 14-16)

Fielder was one of the most feared sluggers in his heyday hitting at least 30 homers for six straight years including an NL-high 50 in 2007. He won three Silver Sluggers and finished in the top-nine of MVP voting four times.
