Trevor Hoffman NOT voted into Baseball Hall of Fame

San Diego Padres pitcher Trevor Hoffman

Trevor Hoffman, the National League All-Time Saves leader and former San Diego Padres closer, did not get enough votes to get into the Baseball Hall of Fame this year. He received votes from 67.3% of the voters, needing 75% for entry.

For San Diego Padres catcher Mike Piazza did get in this year, along with former Seattle Mariners and Cincinnati Reds outfield Ken Griffey Jr.

Hoffman will likely be voted in at some point over the next few years, but will not be one of the few that gets in on their first year of eligibility.
