On getting elected to the Hall of Fame!
Henderson was named on 511 out of 539 ballots (surprising that 28 people did not vote for him) , and Rice slid in barely safely with 412 votes, just 7 more than the minimum number needed. Out of the misses, Andre Dawson (67%) and Bert Blyleven (62.7%) moved to within striking distance of future election. Tim Raines got only 22.6%, which I hope is just “not the first year but eventually” instead of “no”.
Matt Williams got 7 votes, which unfortunately was not enough to keep him on the ballot.
