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.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

I have been behind the microphone for 10 years now. In the course of time, I have covered many elections and have seen first-hand how bruising and hurtful campaigns can be to people. None have been as difficult to watch, however, as the annexation battle in Washington--which pitted good people who care about their community against good people who care about their community.
