  • Baseball writers elect no one to the Hall of Fame in 2021

Whether Schilling makes the Hall of Fame remains to be seen, but that last item likely ensures he won't get in on account of the BBWAA.

Earlier this month, Shaughnessy wrote for the Globe: "Curt Schilling would help himself if he'd stop spewing hate and claiming he's being punished by Baseball Hall of Fame voters because of his "politics.' Supporting a racist mob that stormed the Capitol is not being 'political.' Advocating for lynching journalists, calling Adam Jones a liar when he said he heard racist slurs at Fenway Park, bilking Rhode Island out of $75 million, collecting Nazi memorabilia, and posting anti-transgender material ... these are not 'political" stands".

Some players missed out over old-fashioned baseball disagreements, too.

Scott Rolen finished fourth, jumping from 35.3% last year to 52.9% this year.

The shutout in the BBWAA voting is only part of the reason the Hall won't be gaining any new members this year.

Four other players received at least 40% of the vote: Omar Vizquel (49.1%), Billy Wagner (46.4%), Todd Helton (44.9%) and Gary Sheffield (40.6%).

This is the ninth Baseball Hall of Fame cycle to result in an empty class.

In fact, a simple search for "wool coat" on the store's website brings up a ton of options for much more reasonable prices. It's also ridiculously expensive.

Cooperstown won't be without celebration next summer, though. The Hall's era-based veterans committees typically meet just prior to each year's winter meetings to consider candidates whose eligibility on the writers' ballots has expired. Derek Jeter, Larry Walker, Ted Simmons (veterans committee), and Marvin Miller (veterans committee) will be officially inducted on July 25.

In addition, Schilling was sacked as a baseball analyst by ESPN after posting a derogatory message on social media about transgender people. However, backlash against Schilling's public and social media comments appears to be limiting his support.

"You cowards sat on your hands, did nothing while liberal trash looted rioted and burned for air Jordan's and big screens, sit back. and watch folks start a confrontation for (expletive) that matters like rights, democracy and the end of govt corruption".

Not only did zero former Philadelphia Phillies get elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2021, zero players with ties to any team got elected. "As I've stated often over the past years to those I've spoken with in my heart I am at peace".

Bonds' ex-wife testified in 1995 during divorce proceedings that he beat and kicked her. Bonds said he never physically abused her but once kicked her after she kicked him.

In 2008, the New York Daily News reported that Clemens had a decade-long relationship with country singer Mindy McCready that began when she was 15 and he was a star for the Boston Red Sox. Clemens apologized for unspecified mistakes in his personal life and denied having an affair with a 15-year-old. Landis became commissioner in 1920, and there were no Black players in the majors during his more than two decades in charge.

Following the tallies, Schilling tweeted out, "Former players will be the ultimate judge, as it should be". A record 14 voters sent blank ballots, topping the 12 sent in 2006. This is just the third instance no players secured enough votes since since 1971 (2013, 1996).
