On Tuesday, the Hall of Fame voting results will be announced.
Several players may get the call for induction into the Hall, while others may have to wait a little bit longer.
For fans of the St. Louis Cardinals, the hope is that a certain franchise legend will not have to wait any longer.
Scott Rolen, one of the best defensive third basemen in the history of the game, has been on the ballot for some time, and has only been trending upwards in recent years.
On Twitter, a Cardinals fan posted a picture of Rolen in his Cardinals threads from way back when with the caption that read, “Tomorrow.”

Rolen is certainly deserving when it comes to the Hall of Fame.
The Jasper, Indiana native played 17 seasons in Major League Baseball, six of which were with the Cardinals.
He was traded over from the Philadelphia Phillies in 2002 and helped guide the Cardinals to four division titles in five years, plus two National League pennants and a World Series title in 2006.
If there’s anything holding Rolen back, it’s the amount of time he spent on the injured list.
The third baseman missed most of the 2005 season due to a shoulder injury that essentially plagued him for the rest of his career.
But the numbers tell a different story.
Rolen owns a career batting average of .281, 316 home runs, 2,077 hits, a .364 on-base percentage, and a .490 slugging percentage.
He also owns a career WAR of 70.1.
Cardinals fans are hoping that tomorrow is the day Rolen gets the call.
