Trammell was picked by the 16-member Modern Baseball Era committee.
His former Detroit Tigers teammate, pitcher Jack Morris, also was voted Sunday into the Hall of Fame.
A star shortstop, the 59-year-old Trammell first joined the Tigers in 1977, and spent his entire career with the team. He retired in 1996.
He was the 1984 World Series MVP, hitting .450 and helping to defeat his hometown San Diego Padres in the process.
Trammell will be inducted into the Hall of Fame July 29.
