Blyleven, Alomar Elected To Hall Of Fame

New, 963 comments

In his 14th try, Bert Blyleven was elected to the Hall of Fame today. Blyleven won 287 games, and is fifth all-time in strikeouts (3,701) and ninth all-time with 60 shutouts. Blyleven got 79.7% of the vote.

Joining Blyleven is Roberto Alomar, who gets in on his second try. Alomar, a 12-time All-Star, and winner of 10 Gold Gloves, got a whopping 90% of the vote. Alomar is the spitting image of a Hall of Famer.

Congratulations to both.
