It was announced today that former Cincinnati Reds SS Barry Larkin was announced into the Hall of Fame; Larkin received 86.4% of the vote. Notables Mark McGwire, Jeff Bagwell, Jack Morris, Lee Smith, and Rafael Palmeiro did not get elected, along with first ballot nominee Bernie Willimas. Larkin was a 12 time All Star, 3 time Gold Glover, a World Series Champion and the 1995 MVP. He hit .295 with 198 homers, 960 RBIs, and 379 stolen bases over his 19 year career. Larkin was under the radar for most of his career, as defensive-wiz Ozzie Smith was the better known short stop; Larkin lost many gold gloves to the “Wizard.” Larkin will be inducted to the Hall July 22 with the late Ron Santo, who was voted in by the Veteran’s Committee. The full results are as follows: Barry Larkin 495 (86.4%) Jack Morris 382 (66.7%) Jeff Bagwell 321 (56.0%) Lee Smith 290 (50.6%) Tim Raines 279 (48.7%) Edgar Martinez 209 (36.5%) Alan Trammell 211 (36.8%) Fred McGriff 137 (23.9%) Larry Walker 131 (22.9%)...
