Cubs legend Ernie Banks has died on Friday at the age of 83, a family spokesperson confirmed.
No Oriole has made the Hall of Fame since Cal Ripken in 2007, and Mike Mussina probably won’t make it next year—or the year after. However, this year’s vote was encouraging for Mussina.
For the first time since 1955, four players were elected to Baseball’s Hall of Fame on Tuesday.
Hall of Fame ballots are in the mail. Results will be announced Jan. 6. There are a few players who are no longer eligible to be voted on by the writers.
