Reynolds became eligible for the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2010. 75% of the vote was necessary for induction, and 5% was necessary to stay on the ballot. He received zero votes, and will no longer be on the BBWAA ballot.
Reynolds attended Ouachita Christian School in Monroe,Louisiana, where he was a three time All-State selection,and later attended The University of Texas where he was a two-time Big 12 first team selection. Reynold's high school coach has often made the comment that Reynolds was a far better basketball player than baseball.
