Former pitcher Chris Carpenter headlines the new list of St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame candidates for 2016. Team President Bill DeWitt III made the announcement of the candidates Monday morning at the Winter Warm-Up.
Carpenter, Keith Hernandez, Jason Isringhausen, Mark McGwire, Matt Morris, Edgar Renteria, Scott Rolen, and Joe Torre are the eight former players up for consideration for fans to choose two from.
“I’m sure any two of that group will be great representatives of the Cardinals and the Hall of Fame,” said DeWitt III.
Voting will begin on Friday, March 11th and will remain open until April 20th with the induction ceremonies on August 27th as part of Hall of Fame weekend with the club.
The Cardinals Hall of Fame ballot will be online at cardinals.com/HOF
The organization will also select a veteran player who retired prior to the last 40 years.
