Three players – Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas – will be inducted to the Baseball Hall of Fame this year, the largest number since 1999.

The Baseball Writers of America Association, which last year inducted no players into the Hall of Fame, said those three players earned 75 percent or more of the from 571 voters. Each voter, a writer who has been in the business at least 10 years, received 10 votes and decided among 36 players.

Many people thought Craig Biggio would get in this year, but he barely missed the cut with 74.8 percent of the votes. Some of the writers voting said they thought as many as 13 players deserved their vote this year, which served to split numbers and probably hurt Biggio, Yahoo Sports said.

The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown listed on its website all the votes tallied and who received them.

Glavine, a retired pitcher who played for the Atlanta Braves and the New York Mets, took to Twitter to express his appreciation for the award.



Biggio’s fans took to the Internet, as they have before on a Facebook page called “Craig Biggio Should Be in the Hall of Fame,” to express their dissatisfaction that he missed the vote again.
