This is a story about selecting players for the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame.

In order to vote, members of the Baseball Writers Association of America and must cover baseball for ten consecutive years. Voters are either writers who work in a major-league city following a team or those who do not.

Dave Reynolds was a regional major league baseball reporter writing about the Cubs, Cardinals, and White Sox from 1987 through 2002. Reynolds no longer covers a team regularly but has been an active Hall of Fame voter since 2002.

A new exhibit at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum will explore the state's connections to baseball, from Little League to the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago White Sox.
