This week, the Baseball Hall of Fame welcomed it’s 2014 inductee class. As always, there were players who didn’t make the cut, leaving the window open to continue the debate as to who should get in and who shouldn’t.
It was announced on Wednesday that Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas will be inducted with the rest of the 2014 Baseball Hall of Fame class. Not on the list? Mike Piazza.
The BBWAA made amends for last year’s controversial shutout on Wednesday, electing a trio of players to the Hall of Fame. Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas gained election, with Craig Biggio falling just short.
Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas appeared to be on track to gain election from the Baseball Writers’ Association of America on Wednesday, and Craig Biggio could join them.
The Baseball Writers’ Association of America (BBWAA) will soon announce their selections, if any, for the class of 2014 inductees to the Baseball Hall of Fame. I personally hope Craig Biggio gets into Cooperstown this time around.
Remember the stink made in January when Aaron Sele received a vote for the Hall of Fame? That was nothing compared to this.
“What kind of a society and what kind of world are we living in where we reward these guys for cheating? What kind of message does that send? And you know what? If any of these guys ever get in, I probably will never go back to the Hall of Fame.”
The BBWAA made its statement loud and clear Wednesday: suspicion reigns for baseball’s best from the Steroids Era. Including Mike Piazza.
Steroid-tainted stars Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa have been denied entry to baseball’s Hall of Fame with voters failing to elect any candidates for only the second time in four decades.
The 1993 National League Rookie of the Year was a Met from 1998-2005. He won 10 Silver Slugger Awards and was the All-Star Game MVP in 1996. He also holds the record for most home runs by a catcher with 396.
Judgment day has arrived for Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa to find out their Hall of Fame fates. And then there’s the case of Mike Piazza.
Former Mets’ great Mike Piazza is among 24 first-time Hall of Fame candidates.
Chipper Jones personified what sports and competition are all about.
Johan Santana gave up his fifth grand slam as a Met on Friday, which according to Elias, broke a tie with Ron Taylor, Tug McGraw, Al Leiter and Armando Benitez for the most allowed in club history.
