Hall of Fame Plaques

Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton
442 HR (7th)
MVP in Season 2
4 silver sluggers
6 seasons of over 100 RBIs
Marlins - Dbacks - Rangers - Red Sox

The first position player ever inducted into GBF?s Hall of Fame. Though his career wasn?t lengthy, he was one of the most feared sluggers of his time. He put up a six year peak that coincided with the infamous deadball era, during which he posted five straight seasons of an OPS between .930 and 1.046. Won four Silver Slugger awards in a row from Seasons 1-4, and punctuated his success with a MVP award in Season 2. Hit exactly 52 home runs in three different seasons, and had over 100 RBIs on six occasions. Was the driving force behind seven Marlins playoff appearances (five division titles). At the time of his retirement he ranked 7th all-time in home runs with 442. The best Marlins hitter of all time.

Indians SP Mike Clevinger
7th in ERA 2.96
4 time WS winner with Indians
CY in season 4
3 career no-hitters
3rd in h/9 for SPs (6.4)
9th in K/9 (10.3)
Indians - Lions - Blue Jays - Padres

The epitome of a short game pitcher, ?Clev? only had three complete games in his career?and all three were Season 1 no-hitters. One of the biggest beneficiaries of the deadball era, the early years of GBF is where he cemented himself as a great. In the league?s first five seasons he posted three campaigns of a 1.53 ERA, and the other two below 2.50. In Season 4 he was named the Cy Young Award winner after putting up a 22-1 record with a 1.53 ERA and 12.2 K/9. At time of retirement, he ranked 7th all-time in career ERA (2.96), 3rd in H/9 (6.4), and 9th in K/9 (10.3). Was a key piece to the Indian?s dynasty. Played in Cleveland for seven of his twelve seasons, and amassed 4 rings from his tenure there.

Indians SP Corey Kluber
CYA in season 1 and 2
3 career no hitters
WS MVP in Season 2
2 WS rings
31 career shutouts
3168 K?s, 182 wins, 3.20 ERA
16th in wins, 20th in ERA, 9th in K?s, 10th whip (1.07)
Indians - Dodgers - Rockies - Rangers

Season 1: 27-5, 0.95 era, 0.58 WHIP, 283 innings, 16 shutouts. Lowest single season whip

The face of the ?Age of Aces?. Tossed the best pitching season of all-time in GBF?s inaugural campaign. Posted a 27-5 record to the tune of a microscopic 0.95 ERA and 0.58 WHIP, both of which were record-setting rates. Also threw 16 shutouts during Season 1, setting the high water mark there as well. Won consecutive World Series and Cy Young awards in Seasons 1 and 2, then capped off his second season with a World Series MVP.
Traded to the Dodgers for legendary 1B Cody Bellinger at the start of Season 3, and continued his dominance in LA for two seasons before parlaying that run into a 7-year contract with Colorado. Ranks 16th in wins (182), 20th in ERA (3.20), 9th in strikeouts (3168), and 10th in WHIP (1.07). He spun 3 no-hitters and compiled 31 total shutouts. Will be remembered for his historic Season 1 and his career-long workhorse reliability.

Nationals SP Max Scherzer
-First inductee to win a ring with different teams.
-10th in ERA (3.02), 12th in WHIP (1.08)
-16th in K?s (2697)
-7th in H/9 (6.6)
-10th in K/9 (10.3)
-2357 innings
Nationals - Indians - Dbacks - Astros

Durable, high-octane ace with a penchant for making the playoffs. Reached the postseason in 13 of 14 seasons, and did so with four different teams. The first GBF inductee to win a World Series with two or more teams (3 rings). Had spurts of greatness, but was always a reliable option for a quality outing. Posted two seasons with an ERA below 2.00; three seasons below 2.70, and six more seasons below 4.00. As of his induction in the Hall, he ranks 10th in ERA (3.02), 12th in WHIP (1.08), 7th in H/9 (6.6), and 10th in K/9 (10.3). Won 20 or more games three times, and collected 168 total wins over his 2357 innings. Something of a journeyman of sorts; he didn?t spend more than five years with any club. Nevertheless, his impact was felt wherever he went, and he was revered by teammates and fan bases alike for his intensity and bulldog mentality.

Yankees RP Chad Green
-1st in WHIP (0.75)
-2nd in ERA (1.71)
-2nd in H/9 (4.6), 3rd in saves (215)
-Season 4 RPoY
-12 seasons
Yankees- Rays- Rangers- Royals

Chad Green was somewhat of an underrated player in his day, but he?s as worthy of a HOF inductee as anybody that has stepped foot on a GBF field. As it currently stands, Green ranks 2nd all time in career ERA (1.71), 3rd in saves (215), and 1st in WHIP (0.75), making a strong case for best RP in GBF history. While not having a particularly long career, he makes up for it with an incredible peak. His two best seasons ended with ERAs of 0.68 and 0.39, and he had 5 other seasons posting an ERA of 1.85 or lower. Known for his time with the Yankees (7 years), Green also put up 3 high quality seasons with the Tampa Bay Rays where he tossed between 161 and 118 innings in each. He wasn?t fortunate enough to win a WS in his career, but he did manage to pull away a RPoY in season 4. Green enters the Hall as a consensus top 3 relief pitcher of all-time.

Red Sox SP Chris Sale
-2nd in K/9 (10.6)
-31st in ERA (3.41), 20th in wins (189-140)
-7th in strikeouts (3419)
-19th in innings (2895)
-40th in WHIP (1.15)
-2 career No-Hitters
-Had 6 straight years of 2.80 ERA or lower
-1.40 ERA over 263 innings in Season 1
Red Sox- Athletics- Marlins

One of the most prolific strikeout pitchers in GBF history. Posted a K/9 above 10.0 in an incredible 11 years straight spanning Season 3 through Season 11. Anchored the Red Sox staff as their fearless ace for the first 7 seasons of his career before settling into a solid back-of-rotation option in his twilight years. Not quite as flashy or as lengthy as some of his contemporaries, but his early dominance and gaudy strikeout totals stand out as worthy of induction. That early dominance was punctuated by 2 career no-hitters (Season 1 and 7). Though most of his best work came during the deadball era, he managed to capitalize on that advantage better than most.
