Baseball Hall of Fame announcement 2014: Time, TV info & more

Jim McIsaac

After no players were elected to the Hall of Fame in 2013, we are almost certain to see new inductees this year.

The 2014 MLB Hall of Fame class will be announced by the Baseball Writers Association of America at 2 pm ET on Wednesday, Jan. 8. MLB Network will begin airing coverage of the event at noon. Results will also be released at 2 on the Hall of Fame website and the BBWAA website.

The following 36 players are on the ballot this year:

Moises Alou Jeff Bagwell Armando Benitez Craig Biggio
Barry Bonds Sean Casey Roger Clemens Ray Durham
Eric Gagne Tom Glavine Luis Gonzalez Jacque Jones
Todd Jones Jeff Kent Paul Lo Duca Greg Maddux
Edgar Martinez Don Mattingly Fred McGriff Mark McGwire
Jack Morris Mike Mussina Hideo Nomo Rafael Palmeiro
Mike Piazza Tim Raines Kenny Rogers Curt Schilling
Richie Sexson Lee Smith J.T. Snow Sammy Sosa
Frank Thomas Mike Timlin Alan Trammell Larry Walker

Morris is on his 15th ballot, meaning he will not be eligible for election by the BBWAA after this year. Mattingly, on his 14th ballot, will have one more year of eligibility remaining. There are 19 first-timers up for election, including Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, Frank Thomas and Mike Mussina. Those who receive less than 5% of voting will no longer remain on the ballot in following years.

For information on many of the more notable names on the ballot, check out our list of Hall of Fame profiles that have ran over the past week as well as our "Quick and Dirty Hall of Fame Guide".
