Tony Oliva is on the Hall of Fame Ballot, Your Help Is Needed!

October 31, 2014

TonyO is on the Ballot Again!

And we need your help to get him into the Hall of Fame!

Yesterday, Cooperstown released the names of the 10 players being considered for the Hall of Fame this year and our own Tony Oliva is on the list! What’s even more exciting is that his former roommate Rod Carew is one of the 16 voters! The vote will take place on December 8th. Read the full story here- http://www.baseballhall.org/hall-of-fame/2015-golden-era-committee-ballot including more details about the election process.

There are 3 ways you can help Tony…

1. Mail Pre-Stamped Postcards-

We have designed and printed 8,000 custom postcards that are pre-addressed and pre-stamped. All you have to do is write your short message on the back and mail them in. To request postcards, please email votetonyo@gmail.com and provide your mailing address and desired quantity (in incruments of 25).

2. Mail Your Own Letter-

If you have more to say to the Hall of Fame about why Tony should be inducted, this is your best option! Letters are received at:

Baseball Hall of Fame
Attn- Golden Era Committe
25 Main Street
Cooperstown NY 13326

Don’t forget to write VoteTonyO on the back and front sides of the envelope!

3. Donate Money to Pay for Stamps-

Don’t have time to write letters but want to help? The VoteTonyO group is mailing 5,000 letters and could use more stamps! You can donate any monitary value of your choosing through the Paypal link on our website http://votetonyo.com/how-to-help/. All funds donated will be used for the mailing campaign.

Letters should be mailed before Thanksgiving so that they make it in time!

When we did this letter writing campaign for the 2011 election and had only 100 fans, 3 weeks of prep time and were able to send out 2,000 letters in total. We learned from one of the Voters that they were impressed with the amount of letters that were received talking about Tony!!! Since then we have sent each Hall of Fame Member birthday cards, holiday cards, letters about Tony’s accomplishments and postcards from fans at TwinsFest. Well over 7,000 pieces of mail in total!

We expect that in 2014 we can make an even greater impact than before! We have over 3,000 fans this time, have been planning for 3 years, and expect to send a minimum of 13,000 pieces of mail within the next 37 days!

Please join us as we try to educate the Voters on why they should vote for Tony! We will be posting more frequent information on our Facebook and Twitter pages, please follow and like us!

From All of Us at VoteTonyO, thank you for your help!
