No New Members Elected To Baseball Hall Of Fame

There are no new members heading to the National Baseball Hall of Fame this year. None of the eligible candidates received the required 75-percent of votes from the Baseball Writers' Association of America for election. Longtime Houston Astros infielder Craig Biggio was the closest with 68.2-percent of the vote. Former pitcher Jack Morris received 67.7 percent. First-time eligibles Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds and Sammy Sosa fell well short after careers clouded by steroid accusations. Clemens got 37.6-percent, Bonds 36.2-percent and Sosa just 12.5-percent. It's just the eighth time since voting began in 1936 that no new members were elected to the Hall.

The KLPW Radio Athlete of the Week is Washington Varsity Soccer Goalie Camron Shipley. Camron made countless saves in Washington's 1-0 win over Borgia Saturday night at Jim Scanlan Stadium at Washington High School. The game was scoreless through regulation and two overtimes and Shipley only gave up one goal in the shootout. Camron is a senior and this is his first year playing soccer.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

If you want to get someone's attention, whisper. That old investment brokerage ad is the opposite of what is going on regarding shootings in Ferguson and Tower Grove. When people threaten violence or blankly label one as a racist, it's very hard to listen. The same holds true for those who sum up the plight of impoverished black communities as "that's how those people are."
