Baseball Hall of Fame vote: Schilling, Bonds, Clemens come up short

The Baseball Hall of Fame’s class of 2021 will be an empty one.

Zero candidates met the 75% threshold from the BBWAA vote. Most notably, Curt Schilling (71.1), Barry Bonds (60.7), and Roger Clemens (61.6) came up short.

All three have one more year of eligibility on the ballot before their Hall of Fame fates go to the Veterans Committee.

This marks the ninth time zero entrants have been voted into the Hall of Fame. The classes of 2013, 1996, 1971, 1965, 1960, 1958, 1950 and 1945 were also empty.

Cooperstown will still have a celebration, however. After the 2020 ceremony was canceled over COVID-19 concerns, Derek Jeter, Larry Walker, Ted Simmons, and Marvin Miller will finally get their enshrinement.
