Snapshot: Greg Maddux won’t be unanimous Hall selection

 

355-game winner Greg Maddux won’t be a unanimous selection for the Hall of Fame. Ken Gurnick of MLB.com, a former reporter for the Los Angeles Herald Examiner, says the only player he voted for was Jack Morris. The pitcher is on the Baseball Writers’ Association of America ballot for the 15th and final time after falling 42 votes shy of the three-quarters required last year. Gurnick said Tuesday that he excluded “everybody from the Steroid Era.” Maddux is among three high-profile players on the ballot for the first time, joined by former Atlanta Braves teammate Tom Glavine and White Sox slugger Frank Thomas. This year’s totals will be announced today. Maddux could break Tom Seaver’s record of highest vote percentage of 98.84 set in 1992. – Associated Press
