Given the way the voters have voted over the last few years, it should not really come as a surprise that no new members will be added to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2021. But it’s still kind of weird to write that. For the first time since 1960, no one received the 75% threshold needed to get in, leaving three high-profile players with only one more chance to be on the ballot.
Those three were also the top three vote-getters this go-around. Curt Schilling led the way with 71.1% while Barry Bonds (61.8%) and Roger Clemens (61.6%) followed behind him. Politics and opinions continue to rule the day, so it’s unlikely they will get much more traction come next year, in truth.
