From ESPN.COM

Late New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, former managers Lou Piniella, Davey Johnson and Charlie Manuel, and six players headed by Lee Smith are on the 10-man ballot for the baseball Hall of Fame’s Today’s Game Era committee to consider next month.

Harold Baines, Albert Belle, Will Clark, Orel Hershiser and Joe Carter also are on the ballot for the 16-man committee — which meets Dec. 9 at the winter meetings in Las Vegas — to consider. The committee considers candidates from 1998 to the present, and a candidate needs at least 75 percent of the vote to be elected.
