Baseball HOF Picks Bagwell, Raines, Rodriguez

Jeff Bagwell, Ivan Rodriguez, and Tim Raines were all admitted to the National Baseball Hall of Fame on Wednesday. Bagwell and Raines both easily cleared the 75 percent vote threshold. Raines made it in his tenth and final year of eligibility. Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds missed the cutoff with 54.1 percent and 53.8 percent, respectively, likely due to their alleged use of performance-enhancing drugs.
