Barry Bonds, Rogers Clemens and Sammy Sosa are not elected to the baseball hall of fame. In fact, no players are selected to the class of 2013.
Dan Connolly, from The Baltimore Sun, has more on the voting.
Biggio was followed by pitcher Jack Morris (67.7 percent), Jeff Bagwell (59.6), Mike Piazza (57.8) and former Oriole Tim Raines (52.2). No other candidate was named on at least half the ballots.
Outfielder Barry Bonds, the sport’s all-time home run leader who won seven MVPs, and right-hander Roger Clemens, a seven-time Cy Young Award winner, both failed to get over 40 percent due to their suspected involvement with PEDs.
Bonds was named on 36.2 percent of ballots and Clemens, 37.6 percent. Former Orioles Sammy Sosa (12.5 percent) and Rafael Palmeiro (8.8) also failed to gain support as part of the steroid controversy.
Palmeiro, the only candidate who failed a drug test, received 72 of 573 votes last year (12.6), meaning he dropped by 22 votes this time around. Because he was named on at least 5 percent of ballots, Palmeiro will remain eligible for 2014.
Here is how all of the former Orioles on the ballot fared: Raines 52.2; Lee Smith 47.8; Curt Schilling 38.8; Sosa 12.5; Palmeiro 8.8; David Wells .09; Steve Finley .07; Jeff Conine 0; Jose Mesa 0.
As a policy, Baltimore Sun writers don’t vote for the Hall or Fame or postseason awards.
