Players on the ballot for election to the Hall of Fame are chosen by the Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA). More information about the entire process can be found at the link below:

He is voted in by the Hall of Fame selection committee or the Baseball Writers Association of America.

Not at the present time, since he is still an active player. Upon retirement a player has to wait 5 years before being placed on the Hall of Fame ballot. Derek should be a Hall of Fame candidate upon his retirement.

he has'NT ben inducted YET. but im sure he will be sometime soon Active players are not eligible for induction into the Hall of Fame. A player has to have been retired for at least 5 years to be placed on the ballot. If his career continues as it has, I suspect he'll be on the ballot the first year he's eligible, and easily voted in.

No. Warren Moon retired after the 2000 season and players are not eligible to be elected to the Hall of Fame until five years after their retirement. He was elected in his first year on the Hall of Fame ballot which was 2006.

There is no NBA Hall of Fame. George Mikan was the first NBA player inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1959. Bill Russell was inducted in 1975.
