Nobody Elected Into Baseball Hall of Fame


The voting came out today and nobody, for the first time since 1996, was elected to the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame. Craig Biggio got the most votes but still only managed to get 68.2% which was pretty  far from the 75% needed to get into the hall.  Lohud has the leading vote getting players listed here but here is some of the top ones.

Bernie Williams will fall off of the ballot with Kenny Lofton and David Wells for not getting at least 5% of the vote. Dale Murphy has reached his maximum 15 year stay so he will also no longer be eligible for the BBWAA ballot.
