Baseball Writers Fail to Elect Any Players to the Hall of Fame for 2013

The National Baseball Hall of Fame this afternoon released the results of the 2013 Hall of Fame voting by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. 569 ballots were cast and players needed to appear on 427 ballots for enshrinement (75%).

Two former Astros received some of the highest vote totals.  Craig Biggio received the most number of votes in this year’s voting at 388 (68.2%). Jeff Bagwell received the third highest vote total with 39 votes (59.6%).

Former Twins pitcher Jack Morris received the second highest vote total for 2013 with 385 votes (67.7%).

Commenting on the election, Hall of Fame president Jeff Idelson said, “The standards for earning election to the Hall of Fame have been very high ever since the rules were created in 1936. We realize the challenges voters are faced with in this era. The Hall of Fame has always entrusted the exclusive voting privilege to the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. We remain pleased with their role in evaluating candidates based on the criteria we provide.”
