David Ortiz elected into Baseball Hall of Fame; Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens were denied

David Ortiz elected into Baseball Hall of Fame; Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens were denied

The votes have been tallied and tabulated, and the Baseball Hall of Fame has a new class of one. Boston Red Sox legend David Ortiz was inducted in his first year with 77.9% of the vote, with Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Curt Schilling all failing to make the 75% cutoff point in their final year of eligibility. Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Curt Schilling and Sammy Sosa all coming off the ballot. Alex Rodriguez, unsurprisingly, is primed to take over the role vacated by Bonds and Clemens. He will be the guy with the historic career who watches his vote totals inch up year after year as younger and more forgiving voters enter the process, but in the end, given the precedent set by Bonds and Clemens, he will be yet another victim of his own hubris. Had either of them made it in, Rodriguez would be deemed the biggest winner from this year’s results.
