The Baseball Writers Association of America on Wednesday elected four players to the Hall of Fame, with Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas gaining induction into Cooperstown. Craig Biggio, with 74.8% of the votes, fell just two votes shy of the 75% needed for induction.
Here are the full voting results, from Maddux down to the six players (Sean Casey, Ray Durham, Todd Jones, Paul LoDuca, Richie Sexson, Mike Timlin) who didn't receive a single vote. There were a total of 571 ballots cast, with 75 percent needed for induction.
