Bernie Williams Shy Of Hall Of Fame Votes
As expected, Bernie Williams was not elected to the Hall of Fame. Bernie received 55 votes and appeared on 9.6 percent of ballots cast by members of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. Unfortunately, it’s necessary to capture 75% of the vote for induction. Only Barry Larkin of the Cincinnati Reds was elected this time around, but Don Mattingly received 102 votes, or 17.8 percent, so it’s not all doom and gloom – Mattingly got much less last time.
Maybe the veterans committee with vote Bernie in some day in the future, but I don’t see the BWAA voting him in.
