The Baseball Writers' Association of America (BBWAA) is a professional association for baseball journalists writing for daily newspapers and magazines. The BBWAA was founded in 1908 to improve working conditions for sportswriters in the early part of the 20th century. Currently the BBWAA's major function is the election of players to the Baseball Hall of Fame; all writers with 10 years of membership are eligible to vote.

List of Current MembersEdit

While the directory of members at the official BBWAA site is available only to members of the BBWAA, any sportswriter who mentions that he has filled out or will fill out a ballot for MVP, Hall of Fame, or any other of these awards must be a member. Names of members are followed by the name of the organization they work for and an article in which they proved they were a member.
