BATTERS must meet all four of these criteria:

  • Minimum of 15 years in the Majors.
  • Minimum of $25 average dollar value over the course of his career.
  • Minimum of $30 average dollar value during his peak 10 years.

  • Minimum of $20 average dollar value over the course of his career.
  • Minimum of $25 average dollar value during his peak 7 years.
