Craig Biggio believes it's possible that he wasn't elected to the Hall of Fame because he was on the ballot for the first time with several big stars linked to performance-enhancing drugs. Biggio, who has never been linked to PEDs, received the highest vote total in a year that produced no inductions to Cooperstown on Wednesday. Biggio, who is 20th on the career list with 3,060 hits during his career with the Houston Astros, appeared on 68.2 percent of the 569 ballots - 39 votes shy. Steroids Era stars Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa were also on the ballot for the first time and all fell far short of the required 75 percent required for election. Biggio says ''it's the reality of the era that we played in.''
