On Wednesday, the Hall of Fame voting results were announced. This voting result was most important to me because it contained three of my favorite players of all-time on my ballot in Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, and Mike Piazza. Arguably, the greatest hitter, pitcher, and catcher of the late 1990′s-early 2000′s were on the ballot. Then, I saw at 2:00 PM EST that nobody got elected into the Hall of Fame for 2013. As a baseball fan, it stirred up a lot of emotion in me because of the thought of having some of the best players I have ever seen not recognized for their greatness because of the “Steroid Era”.
This has stirred up comments and opinions from not just Yankee fans, but Major League Baseball fans in general. So, for that reason, I decided to hold a special edition of the Yanks Go Yard Radio Show. This show features writers from the teams of those respective players who did not make the Hall Of Fame. Those players that I significantly wanted to focus on were Bonds, Clemens, Piazza, Craig Biggio, and Jeff Bagwell. I asked the following writers about their player’s candidacy, as well as, potential changes to the ballot and how the Hall of Fame should be viewed by the baseball fan.
These writers are:
