Fan Reps

Fan reps are the cheerleaders for the nominees who go and help get their nominee enough votes to be inducted. This is about PASSION!

Kaitlyn Barnes is the first fan rep to have a nominee inducted (The Monkees.) EVERY DAY she had a video, a clip, a note, something online to get people to vote for the Monkees! She is a DYNAMO of a person, and a helluva singing voice!

Joe Bennett was a 2X fan rep in the same session—a pretty darn good showing for a rookie!

Brett Butler is an Orioles fan! He and David porter represented Boog Powell for induction! GREAT JOB BRETT!

John Carbo represented both Foreigner and Pete Rose. Many would think these two would be easy to represent; they would be naïve as it took a great deal from John to establish a new record- two nominees from two separate categories inducted at the same time !

Cary Calwell. I won’t be shy about this: I thought Badfinger would be one of the three replacement nominees at the end of the first induction election. Cary came along and not only proved me wrong, but her nominee had the highest vote total of any nominee inducted in the October 2020 induction period. ‘Nuff said: drop the mic.

Jennifer Carter has been a fan rep twice….and been successful twice! The first time was Ozzy Osbourne then Ted Nugent! Samuel L Jackson has her to thank for induction too!

Mike Court is a fan rep monster! Kurt Russel, LeRoy Butler, Cecil Cooper, Marques Johnson, Bobby Dandridge, and Michael J Fox!

Garett Gutowski was Ben Wallace’s Fan Rep. A die hard Detroit sports fan, he is also the fan rep for THREE other Detroit-based nominees!

Kevin O’Brien was the fan rep for Bo Jackson and Don Mattingly. He is THE only person thus far to rep 2 different nominees in two different session AND GET BOTH INDUCTED! Recently he got Mark Grace inducted!

Jay Pea was a fan rep BEAST in one session, coming in the middle of a session and getting both Bobby Grich and Charles Bronson inducted!

David Porter was Warren Zevon’s Fan Rep. He took a nominee who wasn’t even in the top half of the filed and won with the 3K race! (He then went on to help “Baltimore ” Brett Buckler get Boog Powell inducted!)

Jim N Terri Sinnett Were Rick Martin’s fan reps. They were able to get Rick inducted while stationed in Sudan!

Kris Tims was Roger Craig’s fan rep. Here’s the best way to describe Kris: I told him Roger would get votes if he wrote a blurb for me to publish on the HOPDG page. He got 3 paragraphs back to me, no typos, in 5 minutes!!!!

Rick Underwood was the fan rep for Richard Pryor, Glenn Close and Kenny Lofton!

Walt Webber Jr. Has repped Judas Priest and Charlie Simner…talk about Range! (And he is a heckuva story teller too!)

June West was the representative for the Marshall Tucker Band. Talk about Diligent! Of all the fan rep’s , June had the most communication with me, the commissioner, averaging a question or idea every day! She went so far out to get voters for MTB I think she may have even contacted people in Asia! She is a-maz-ing!

  1. Dave Dravecky is a worthy nominee for this award. His inspirational comeback from cancer to win two games is amazing. His work with individuals through his organization, Outreach of Hope and later Endurance has help many during their time of need. I had two friends who were inspired by his organization when they received material of hope. He is an incredible motivational speaker. I have met him and he is truly a nice man who through him cancer and loss of a limb remains a positive nice man.
