2013 Hall of Fame Vote a Shutout | Baseball Hall of Fame

2013 Hall of Fame Vote a Shutout | Baseball Hall of Fame | Sports Ethics: Lopez, M. | Scoop.it

A winning candidate did not emerge from the Hall of Fame balloting conducted by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America and verified by Ernst & Young. There were 569 ballots cast, the third highest total in the history of the voting, but none of the 37 candidates in the 2013 vote gained mention on the required 75 percent for election to the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

marco lopez's insight:

This year there was no baseball hall of fame inductees. A lot of that has to do with the steroid scandals that shadow some of the cadidates this year. I beliave it is unfair to select a steroid user to the hall of fame but I also believe that there was elegible candidates this year for the hall of fame.
