The members of the 2013 Baseball Hall of Fame Class ARE. . .

This afternoon, The Baseball Writers Association of America announced the results of the Baseball Hall of Fame Class of 2013 balloting.

NO ONE reached the required 75% to be voted to the Hall of Fame in 2013.

This is the first time since 1996 that no one was elected by the Baseball Writers Association of America for induction into the Hall of Fame.

First timer Craig Biggio got the closest with 68% of the vote and was only 39 vote short of being elected this year.

Looking forward to the Class of 2014 Hall of Fame Ballot, some of the notable players who are eligible for election to the Hall of Fame are:

P Tom Glavine, IF Jeff Kent, P Greg Maddox, P Mike Mussina, 1B/DH Frank Thomas.

Dale Murphy was on the ballot for 15 years and will no longer be voted on by the BBWAA; next year will be the last year that Jack Morris can be voted on by the BBWAA.
