Why isn't Roger Maris in the Hall of Fame?

Joe McCarthy ------ Phil Niekro ------ Gaylord Perry ----- Phil Rizzuto ----- Babe Ruth ----- Casey Stengal ----- Dave Winfield


Roger Maris first became eligible for induction into the National Baseball 
Hall of Fame in 1974. According to the rules of election, Maris was 
eligible for consideration by the Baseball Writers' Association (BBWAA) 
of America for fifteen years. During that span of time, Maris garnered a
 considerable number of votes, though never more than the 75% required for
 induction. In 1992, after a required three-year wait following the BBWAA 
voting period, Maris became eligible for consideration for induction by the
 Hall of Fame Committee on Baseball Veterans. At this time, Roger Maris 
remains eligible for consideration by the Hall of Fame Committee on 
Baseball Veterans, but not the BBWAA.

While Mr. Maris is not currently a member of the Hall of Fame, he is well
 represented in the Museum. Many artifacts from his career are part of the
 Museum collection. Both the bat and ball from his record-breaking 
61st home run of the 1961 season are on display here at the Museum.
