Major League Baseball has released the list of players on the ballot for a spot in the Baseball Hall of Fame for 2022, and Detroit Tigers fans will immediately notice a handful of former players that once donned the Old English D, including Torii Hunter and Prince Fielder.

Of course, Fielder is the son of former Tigers slugger Cecil Fielder and was signed to a stunning massive deal in early 2011. He had 55 home runs and over 200 RBI in two seasons with the Tigers before being dealt to the Texas Rangers.
Meanwhile, Hunter was inked by Detroit in November of 2012 and quickly became a favorite of both the fan base and his teammates.
Additionally, pitcher Joe Namath is on the list, though he didn’t exactly endear himself to the fan base. Former slugger Gary Sheffield is also there as well.
