Three Players Inducted Into National Baseball Hall of Fame Class of 2024

Published on

The National Baseball Hall of Fame will officially gain three new members this summer.

Adrián Beltré, Joe Mauer and Todd Helton received enough votes from the Baseball Writers’ Association of America to punch their tickets into Cooperstown. The players will be officially introduced during a ceremony on July 21.

Players on the ballot needed 75% of the votes to be elected into the Hall of Fame. Those who did not receive 5% of the votes or have been on the ballot for 10 years will be removed.

Beltré received a vote on 366 of the 385 submitted BBWAA ballots, good for 95.1% and enough to enter in his first year of eligibility. Helton received 79.7% of the vote, while Mauer (76.1%) received four more votes than the needed 289 to be elected.

The Class of 2024 featured 26 candidates, including 12 first-time nominees.

Gary Sheffield, who was on the final year of his ballot eligibility, did not receive enough votes to enter the Hall of Fame, finishing at 63.%. Seven-time All-Star Billy Wagner finished just five votes shy (73.8%) of the needed votes in his ninth year on the ballot.
