2014 Baseball Hall of Fame Preview

The 2013 Baseball Hall of Fame Class is missing from the Baseball Hall of Fame in a rare move for the voters. In 2013 no player was elected by the voters as only three players would hear their named called and all were by the veteran’s committee. It was a strange thing to see when the Hall of Fame class was announced for 2013 but it was for a reason. The Baseball writers were sending a message to those eligible for the Hall of Fame that cheating would not be tolerated.
