Fairly shocking result as only Andre Dawson was elected to the Hall of Fame today. He’ll join manager Whitey Herzog and umpire Doug Harvey, who were selected last month by the veterans committee.

Here’s the story from the Baseball Writers’ Association.

Bert Blyleven and Roberto Alomar were incredibly close. Each came within a 1.5 percent of the 75 percent necessary for election.
