Baseball Hall Of Fame Ballots To Be Released Today

By on January 8th, 2014

Voting will be released today for the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame class of 2014 that could send more players into Cooperstown.

The ballot is loaded with players that many believe belong in the Hall of Fame but most expect only a few to get the required 75 percent vote today.   Most agree that pitcher Greg Maddux will get in on his first try today but after that, there could be none or as many as three or four more that get into the Hall of Fame.

Many believe pitcher Tom Glavine and first baseman/designated hitter Frank Thomas have the best shots at getting in outside of Maddux.   Many also believe the versatile Craig
Biggio, who just missed election last year, has a good chance this year to get in.

Pitcher Jack Morris is in his last year of eligibility for the Hall of Fame from the writers and most do not expect him to get enough votes; he received over 60 percent of the votes last year.

The so called “Steroid Era” players who are eligible like pitcher Roger Clemens and outfielders Barry Bonds and Sammy Sosa, are once again expected not to come close to getting enough votes to get in.
