The Baseball Hall of Fame Ballot for 2005 is out and 27 players are on it. Former Royals closer Jeff Montgomery is a first on the ballot for the first time Montgomery is the Royals all time saves leader with 304. Former Cardinals’ centerfielder Willie McGee is also on the ballot for the first time. He was the 1985 National League MVP and won two NL batting titles, though his 1990 crown came in a shortened season. He was traded to Oakland during the season, but had enough official at-bats to be the N.L. hitting champ that year. Relievers Lee Smith and Bruce Sutter are on the ballot again.
