Petition Closed

Today, the voters of the National Baseball Hall of Fame spoke loudly and clearly through their votes and demonstrated that they will not induct any player they suspect to have used performance enhancing drugs, regardless of how flimsy their evidence may be.

Since a precedent has been created by the voters to exclude all players suspected to have used steroids from induction, I believe it is time to create a commission to unilaterally remove all players suspected to have used amphetamines from the Hall of Fame. If this is not done, the exclusion of any worthy player based on "suspicion" is arbitrary and capricious, which this process cannot and should not be.

Letter to
Chairman of the Board of Directors of The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum Jane Forbes Clark
President of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum Jeff Idelson
In the interests of fairness, please remove the members of the Hall of Fame who have been linked to amphetamine use so that the selection process is no longer arbitrary.
