Rockies’ Todd Helton elected to Baseball Hall of Fame

DENVER – Todd Helton, a beloved Rockies player, has been elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame. The exciting news was announced from Cooperstown on Tuesday.

Helton, along with Adrián Beltré and Joe Mauer, was chosen as one of the three players to be inducted this year. He received an impressive 79.7% of the votes. This marks Helton’s sixth year on the Hall of Fame ballot. His vote count has steadily increased since his first appearance in 2019, where he received 16.5% of the votes.

In 2020, he garnered 29.2%, followed by 44.9% in 2021, 52% in 2022, and an impressive 72.2% last year. He needed at least 75% to secure his place in Cooperstown. Throughout his remarkable 17-year career, Helton played exclusively for the Rockies. He achieved incredible statistics, including 2,519 hits, 592 doubles, 369 home runs, 1,406 RBIs, and an impressive batting average of .316. Additionally, he earned three Gold Gloves as a first baseman. Helton’s outstanding performance ranks him 20th all-time in doubles.

Helton now joins Larry Walker as the only Hall of Famers from the Rockies. Walker was honored with his induction in 2020.
