Bert Blyleven, Roberto Alomar Elected to Hall of Fame

Bert Blyleven and Roberto Alomar, both of whom fell only a few votes short of election in last year's election, were named on over 75% of the ballots this year and are now members of the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Alomar hit .300, stole 474 bases, and won 10 Gold Gloves over his 17-year career. He helped the Toronto Blue Jays win the World Series in 1992 and 1993.

Blyleven won 287 games in a 22-year career, ranks fifth all time in strikeouts with 3701, and ranks ninth all time with 60 shutouts. He was also a key member of two World Series champions, leading both the 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates and 1987 Minnesota Twins in starts and innings pitched.
