For the first time since 1996, no player was elected by the BBWAA into the Baseball Hall of Fame. On this year's ballot, a player needed to receive 427 votes to reach or exceed the 75% needed for induction. Craig Biggio was closest, just short by 39 votes.

The players whose names are italicized will appear on next year's ballot, having surpassed the five percent rule to stay on (29 votes). Dale Murphy was on his fifteenth and final ballot, and will now wait for the Veteran's Committee to decide his fate in the future.

According to the Baseball Hall of Fame website, 569 ballots were cast. Five of the ballots returned were left BLANK!!!

Sincerely,

I'm not a "big hall" guy by any means but I count at least a half dozen worthy candidates. What do you think?

I'd like to see Biggio in there, but until Joe Jackson gets in, forget about the HGH guys
