Other first-timers on this ballot included Mark Teixeira, Ryan Howard, Tim Lincecum, Prince Fielder, Jimmy Rollins, Jonathan Papelbon, Carl Crawford, and Jake Peavy.

Some of the biggest names in baseball are in the final year of balloting. After 10 years Curt Schilling, Barry Bonds, and Roger Clemens will no longer be eligible.

When you look at the Golden Days and Early Baseball Era, the MLB HOF will finally tip their hats to Jim Kaat and Tony Oliva, and the late Bud Fowler, Gil Hodges, Minnie Miñoso, and Buck O’Neil, in being inducted into the Hall on July 24 in Cooperstown, N.Y.
