Today is the day that we will find out which former MLB players, if any, will be enshrined in Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.
But there are a few other stars that may not be getting the proper recognition from certain writers.
Each star has a compelling case for the Hall, and MLB Network analyst Jon Morosi broke down both of them and discussed if they were worthy of the call.

Sheffield is a player that has been trending upwards in recent years.
Morosi noted that he doesn’t have too much time left on the ballot, but discussed how the slugger had a total of more than 500 home runs during his storied career.
In addition to his power, Sheffield had an OPS of .907 and was a career .292 hitter.
Morosi also noted that if there’s one thing that might be holding him back, it would be an accidental use of a banned substance, which he admitted to in 2004.
Still, Sheffield never tested positive for steroids while MLB was testing.
For Rollins, the case is also quite compelling.
The Philadelphia Phillies legend is a former National League MVP and was a key piece of the Phillies’ runs to the World Series in 2008 and 2009.
Morosi also talked about Rollins’ durability and his leadership, citing them as important qualities of a Hall of Fame player.
