Home Run King Barry Bonds received 34.7% of the votes, which was down from the 36.2% votes he received last year. Jeff Kent tallied 15.2% votes in his first year of eligibility. You need 75% of votes required for election.

Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas were selected to Cooperstown, joining elected former managers Bobby Cox, Tony La Russa and Joe Torre, who were selected unanimously by the Expansion Era Committee last month.

Enshrinement ceremonies for the Hall of Fame take place on Sunday, July 27.
