Baseball Hall of Fame panel sends Fred McGriff to Cooperstown


The lengthy look forward to Baseball Corridor of Fame recognition is lastly over for Fred McGriff.

McGriff was unanimously elected to baseball’s Corridor of Fame via a vote by the Corridor’s “Modern Period” committee, incomes all 16 votes as others who dropped off the writers’ poll noticed their help shrivel.

Yankees nice Don Mattingly obtained eight votes and pitcher Curt Schilling seven, falling nicely wanting the 12 wanted for election. Two-time Atlanta Braves MVP Dale Murphy earned six votes. 

However slugger Barry Bonds — a seven-time MVP — and pitcher Roger Clemens — a seven-time Cy Younger Award winner — didn’t garner not less than 4 votes. That lower than 25% help is a major dropoff from the 66% and 65% of votes Bonds and Clemens obtained, respectively, from the Baseball Writers’ Assn. of America of their remaining 12 months on that poll.
