Bert Blyleven, Roberto Alomar elected to Hall of Fame

By Cindy Boren

Roberto Alomar and Bert Blyleven have been elected to the Hall of Fame in voting by members of the Baseball Writers Association of America.

Alomar and Blyleven were easily elected; Alomar received 90 percent of the votes cast and Blyleven 79.7 percent. In order to be elected, a former player needs 75 percent.

Among the also-rans, Barry Larkin came closest to election with 62.1 percent of the votes. Rafael Palmeiro, who failed a steroid test in 2005, received only 11 percent of the votes.

Dave Sheinin will have details on Baseball Insider shortly.
