Hall of Fame Vote Totals
Here is how the voting broke down. Rickey Henderson-94.8% Jim Rice-76.4% Andre Dawson-67% Bert Blyleven-62.7% No one else got even close but here are the other notables Lee Smith-44.5% Jack Morris-44% Tim Raines-22.6%-I am suprised he didn't get more support as he may be the 2nd best leadoff hitter of all time. Mark McGwire-21.9%-I am happy about this that he is being affected by steroids as he should. Don Mattingly-11.9% Players are eligible to remain on the ballot for 15 years as long as they recieve 5% of the vote. Those that will remain on next year are: Dawson,Blyleven,Morris,Smith,Raines,McGwire,Mattingly,Trammel,Parker,Murphy and Baines. The New ones for next year are Barry Larkin,Roberto Alomar. I think these are the most notable. Andres Galarraga is also eligible next year.
