Pedro Martinez elected into the Hall of Fame; Mike Piazza falls short

Pedro Martinez received roughly 91% of the votes from BBWAA writers. Martinez won 219 games and had an ERA under 3 at 2.91. Martinez played on the New York Mets from 2005 to 2008.

Mike Piazza received 70% of the votes, falling 5% short of the 75% necessary. Piazza had a 7% increase from last year. Experts believe that Mike Piazza’s increase trend means that he’ll be in the Hall Of Fame by next year. John Smoltz, Craig Biggio and Randy Johnson also got elected into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY.
