The Baseball Writers’ Association of America has elected Chipper Jones, Vladimir Guerrero, Jim Thome and Trevor Hoffman to the Hall of Fame. Jones (97.2% of the vote) and Thome (89.8%) were eligible for the first time, Guerrero (92.9%) for the second and Hoffman (79.9%) the third. The full results are available here.

Among the players who fell short of the required 75%, Edgar Martinez came the closest with 70.4%. Martinez has one more year of eligibility. Mike Mussina, at 63.5%, was the only other player to top 60%. Players connected to steroid use continued to trail, with Barry Bonds at 56.4%, Roger Clemens at 57.3% and Sammy Sosa at just 7.8%.
