Former Detroit Tigers infielder Placido Polanco included on 2019 Hall of Fame ballot

It may be cold and snowy outside but let’s shift our focus to Detroit Tigers baseball for a moment!

On Monday, the 2019 Baseball Hall of Fame ballot was released and it includes former Tigers infielder, Placido Polanco.

Polanco played with the Tigers from 2005-2009. During that time, he hit .311 in 632 games and helped lead the Tigers to the 2006 World Series.

From Baseball Writers’ Association of America:

Polanco, a .297 career hitter in a 16-season career with the Phillies, Marlins, St. Louis Cardinals and Detroit Tigers, won two Gold Glove Awards as a second baseman and one as a third baseman, the only player to win awards at two infield positions. In addition, Polanco owns the highest career fielding percentages among qualified fielders at those positions: .993 at second base and .983 at third base. He was the MVP of the 2006 ALCS in the Tigers’ pennant-winning victory over the A’s.

Results will be announced by Hall of Fame president Jeff Idelson on Jan. 22, 2019, live on MLB Network.

Pitchers Mariano Rivera, Roy Halladay and Andy Pettitte; infielders Todd Helton, Michael Young, Miguel Tejada and Placido Polanco and outfielder Juan Pierre will join 15 holdovers from the 2018 balloting in which infielders Chipper Jones and Jim Thome, outfielder Vladimir Guerrero and relief pitcher Trevor Hoffman were elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y.
