No one voted in MLB Baseball Hall of Fame

LEWISTON, ID - Wednesday is the first time since 1996 that not one person received enough votes to be inducted into the MLB Hall of Fame.

The Baseball Writers Association of America threw a shutout earlier as elections for the Hall of Fame induction were held and no one made it home to Cooperstown.

Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens were the two main players whose numbers suggest they belong in the Hall of Fame.

However, tainted by the suspicion of using performance enhancing drugs, Bonds only received 36.2% of the votes and Clemens got 37.6%, a far cry from the required 75. Officials said that just one player made it even somewhat close.

"For only the 8th time since voting began in 1936, Bryan, the voting membership did not elect anyone to Cooperstown," said National Baseball Museum President Jeff Idelson. "Craig Biggio leading the pack with 68% of ballots cast, just 39 votes short of election."

The Hall of Fame will hold a ceremony and induct three new members this summer that were voted in by the Veterans Committee in December. All three men died in the 1930's which will make for an odd ceremony with no living honorees.
