The new inductees to baseball's Hall of Fame will be announced today. Tony Gwynn and Cal Ripken Jr. should be shoo-ins to be inducted this year. With some luck maybe Andre Dawson will finally make the cut, along with one of my sentimental favorites Bert Blyleven. Though I won't be holding my breath in hopes that either Dawson or Blyleven will finally get their due.
The most "controversial" person on the ballot, Mark McGwire, probably won't be voted in but I would expect him to garner enough votes to remain on the ballot for next year.
The results of the voting will be released while I am at work and thus I will be unable to write anything about it. If you would like to write a diary post about the outcome(s) of the voting, I should be able to post it on the main page sometime during the day. If not, I will cover it tomorrow.
It's Hall of Fame day.
