Congratulations to Barry Larkin for being elected into the Hall of Fame in what was third year on the ballot!!!

To get in this year, a player had to appear on 430 ballots. The players whose names are italicized will appear on next year's ballot, having surpassed the five percent rule to stay on (30 votes).

According to the Baseball Hall of Fame website, 573 ballots were cast. Nine of the ballots returned were left BLANK!!!

Sincerely,

JayBee Anama

I am so sick of the guys with the blank ballots. It was a fine statement to make ONCE as a protest, but now they need to eliminate them as future voters.

I think a blank ballot is entirely appropriate, if you don't think there are any worthwhile candidates. I don't think I would have voted for any of these guys... I consider Larkin to be a marginal HOFer.
