About the Era Committees
The Era Committees consist of three different electorates: The Contemporary Baseball Era, consisting of the period from 1980 to present day, and the Classic Baseball Era, consisting of the period prior to 1980 and including Negro Leagues and pre-Negro Leagues stars. The Contemporary Baseball Era is split into two separate ballots – one ballot to consider only players who made their greatest impact on the game since 1980, and another composite ballot consisting of managers, executives and umpires whose greatest contributions to the game have come since 1980.
Eras considered for yearly induction over the upcoming years are as follows: 2024 – Contemporary Baseball Managers/Executives/Umpires; 2025 – Classic Baseball; 2026 – Contemporary Baseball Player; 2027 – Contemporary Baseball Managers/Executives/Umpires; 2028 – Classic Baseball.
Both the ballot and electorate are created anew with each cycle for consideration.
