The 2023 Baseball Hall of Fame vote is here. The Baseball Writers’ Association of America announced the results on Tuesday night and Scott Rolen is headed to Cooperstown after appearing on the necessary 75% of ballots for election.
Rolen appeared on 76.3% of ballots, Todd Helton was the second-highest finisher at 72.2% while Billy Wagner (68.1%), Andruw Jones (58.1%) and Gary Sheffield (55.0%) were the only other candidates to appear on more than 50% of ballots.
In December, Fred McGriff was selected as the newest member of the Hall of Fame — with Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Curt Schilling denied again. McGriff was a unanimous choice among the 16 members of the inaugural contemporary baseball era committee, which considered a ballot of eight candidates whose primary contributions to the game took place after 1980.
