The Baseball Hall of Fame released its official 2023 ballot on Monday. Members of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America (BBWAA) will have until Dec. 23 to finalize and submit their ballots before an official announcement is made on Tuesday, Jan. 24 in 2023.

One longtime San Francisco Giants All-Star is on the ballot for one final appearance.

That infielder is none other than Jeff Kent. Kent spent six of his 17-year career with the Giants where he took home three of his five All-Star appearances and that special 2000 MVP award.

Throughout his 17-year career, Kent collected 2,461 hits, 377 home runs and 1,518 RBIs. This will be his last remaining year of eligibility on the Hall of Fame ballot.

A player is not enshrined into Cooperstown until he earns at least 75% of the votes on a particular ballot. Players who receiver between 5% and 75% of the votes can hang on the ballot for 10 years.
