Major League Baseball Hall of Fame Class of 2014

CINCINNATI (Brad Johansen) -- Three players are elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame Wednesday as steroids continue to hurt other candidates.  

Steroids will continue to be a problem.  Roger Clemens did receive 35-percent of the vote, Barry Bonds 34-percent and Mark McGuire 11-percent.  But three made it it in easily on their first ballot - and a 4th painfully was painfully close.

With 75-percent of the vote needed, the man they called 'The Big Hurt,' Frank Thomas, received over 83-percent of the vote. He becomes the first Hall-of-Famer whose career began in the 90's.  He was primarily a designated hitter.

The first pair of teammates to go in with over 90-percent of the votes is the Baves' Greg Maddux - with 97-percent - and Tom Glavine - with over 91 percent.

The honor is something that takes a little while to sink in according to Glavine.

Craig Biggio tied a record with the closest margin of exclusion - missing the 75 percent by just two votes.
