After weeks of debate and enhanced drama, “judgment day” was finally upon us – would anyone be voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame Class of 2013? The answer was finally provided by Jeff Idelson, president of the Hall of Fame, and the answer was no.

This year was the first year of eligibility for the main corps of cheaters during the “Steroid Era” of Major League Baseball: Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa. Clemens received the highest percentage of those cheaters, coming in at 37.6 percent. Meanwhile, the self-proclaimed “home run king” Bonds received 36.2 percent, and Sosa got 12.5 percent.

The closest any player came to surpassing the 75-percent threshold for entering the Hall of Fame was first-year nominee Craig Biggio, who finished his career with 3,060 hits and received 68.2 percent of the votes. Other first-year nominees included Mike Piazza, who received 57.8 percent, and Curt Schilling finishing with 38.8 percent.

Another noteworthy nominee that received attention for continuing to receive the “Bert Blyleven treatment” is Jack Morris, who was snubbed again with only 67.7 percent of the votes. His final year of eligibility for general election will be 2014, before getting his name sent to the Veterans Committee.
