HOUSTON, TX – It’s an injustice that’s just as bad as Houston not getting a shuttle. Astro’s legend Craig Biggio didn’t get voted into the baseball Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility. The star player had a 3000 hit career.
Biggio got 68% of eligible votes. He was 39 votes short of election.
All around voting was a bust. For the first time since 1996, no one got into the Hall of Fame in this year’s balloting. Jeff Bagwell, in his second year of eligibility, got 57% of the vote. Roger Clemens got 37% and Barry Bonds got 36%. 75% is required.
This is only the eighth time since 1936 that no one has been voted in.
