I figured this would be the easiest way to compile a list of potential inagural class candidates. The 190 comment thread would be a difficult place to keep track, so here we can be a little more organized. Make suggestions and I'll add them to the lists. Since this is just a way to keep track of potential candidates, feel free to throw out some "maybes." Mods, feel free to edit the OP accordingly.
This may also help keep that initial thread focused on the manner in which people are elected, etc. Without further adieu...

Congratulations to Michigan great Barry Larkin on being elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame!
Larkin, who spent his entire 19-year career with the Cincinnati Reds, was the lone player inducted into the Hall of Fame on his third year of the ballot. Larkin received 86% of the vote of the Baseball Writers' Association of America, eclipsing the 75% needed for induction.

This one is for all the marbles. Hell of a series, definately deserves a game 7. Let's see what tonight brings.
Rangers vs Cardinals, Game 6
Being a possible elimination game, I figured the fall classic is finally worthy of a thread of its own. Who ya got?
