Ken Griffey Jr., Mike Piazza Elected To Baseball Hall Of Fame

When you think of the greatest baseball players to take the diamond over the last 25 seasons, the names Ken Griffey Jr. and Mike Piazza are some of the first ones that come to mind.

The numbers for both inductees are eye popping:

Both players will be inducted into the hall at a ceremony in Cooperstown, New York this summer. Other candidates received their own amount of votes, but only Junior and Piazza reached the 75% requirement:

Someone please find me the three voters who didn’t have Griffey on their ballot … that is a joke!
