The Hall of Fame

Yesterday, the National Baseball Hall ofFame gained two new members as Roberto Alomar and Bert Blyleven were voted in by Baseball Writers Association of America.

Alomar was selected in his second year on the ballot with 90 percent of the vote; meanwhile, Bert Blyleven in his 14th with 79.7 percent of the vote. Induction was a long time coming for both, and it’s good to see them finally get their day in the sun this summer.


It’s especially good to see Alomar, who was snubbed last year – perhaps mainly because of the infamous Hirschbeck incident – was recognized for his brilliance on the field and with his bat.

His life has been rough the past several years because of some domestic issues, but he more than anyone on that list should have been a first ballot Hall of Famer.
