Rye’s Surhoff Garners Votes for Baseball Hall of Fame

When the Baseball Writers of America recently elected Roberto Alomar and Bert Blyleven to the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, among those receiving votes was Rye‘s own B.J. Surhoff. Drafted with the first pick overall in 1985 by Milwaukee (over Barry Bonds, Randy Johnson, Barry Larkin, and Rafael Palmeiro) after starring at Rye High and the University of North Carolina, Surhoff’s 19-year career with the Brewers, Braves, and Orioles garnered votes on two of the ballots.

Named one of the ACC’s Top 50 athletes of all time, Surhoff is already in the Westchester hall of Fame.
