2013 Hopefuls Strike Out in Bid for MLB Hall of Fame

The 2013 class of inductees to baseball’s Hall of Fame: Nobody.  For just the eighth time, not a single player earned enough votes from the Baseball Writers Association of America to secure their shrine in Cooperstown.

FOX News Radio’s Hank Weinbloom reports from New York:

Audio clip:

Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, Roger Clemens, Mike Piazza, Curt Schilling: Not one of them will be in Cooperstown this summer, none of them elected to baseball’s Hall of Fame.  Some of them were linked to steroid use, others merely suspected of possibly using banned substances.

Sportswriter Peter Gammons telling the MLB Network it’s a good thing for baseball to confront its so-called “Steroids Era” this way:

(Gammons) “What would have happened in Cooperstown in late July would have been a mess.  It would have been an embarrassment to the Hall.”

Barry Bonds, the top home run hitter ever, not picked by nearly two-thirds of the sportswriters voting.
