Baseball HOF To Announce Voting Results For Steroid-Era Ballot
The Baseball HOF at 2:00pm ET today will announce the '13 voting results from the Baseball Writers Association of America. The announcement will be shown live on MLB Network and MLB.com, with the TV channel wrapping around the reveal of the voting with a three-hour HOF show beginning at noon. The ballot is perhaps the most hotly debated in the Hall's 76-year history, with the first-time inclusion of several Steroid Era stars such as Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa. Following the announcement, ESPN2 will televise a "Baseball Tonight Hall Of Fame Special" at 3:00pm ET (THE DAILY).
The L.A. TIMES' Bill Shaikin writes under the sub-header, "Baseball's Hall of Fame could play host to a ceremony this summer with no living inductees. Businesses in Cooperstown, N.Y., are worried." The MILWAUKEE JOURNAL-SENTINEL's Tom Haudricourt writes, "This was the ballot that most of the BBWAA electorate had been dreading." The CHICAGO SUN-TIMES' Rick Telander writes under the header, "I Refuse To Condone The MLB Cheating Frenzy."
