The Baseball Hall of Fame voting was revealed at 2 p.m. today, and Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas all earned the requisite 75% of votes to be enshrined. All three were in their first year on the ballot. Maddux earned 97.2% of votes, Glavine 91.9% and Thomas 83.7%.
Glavine will go into the Hall of Fame as an Atlanta Brave, but spent the 2003-2007 seasons with the Mets, compiling a 61-56 record, a 3.97 ERA, a 107 ERA+, and recorded his 300th win on August 5, 2007. He will be the 12th Met player elected to the Hall of Fame, with one-time teammate Roberto Alomar being the most recent ex-Met elected.
There were plenty of other ex-Mets on the ballot as well who didn’t fare as well, these include:
Jeff Kent – 15.2%
Moises Alou – 1.1%
Hideo Nomo – 1.1%
Kenny Rogers – 0.2%
Armando Benitez – 0.2%
Paul Lo Duca – 0.0%
Congratulations to all the inductees.
