The Hall of Fame will announce the 2014 class of inductees on Jan. 8.
Eligible voters who have been members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America for 10 years may select from zero to 10 candidates.
Those candidates appearing on 75 percent of the submitted ballots are elected. Candidates may remain on the ballot for as many as 15 years, provided they continue to appear on 5 percent of the ballots cast.
Here is my Hall of Fame ballot.
Second-year candidates Mike Piazza, Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens appear on my ballot for the first time. I also voted for Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas in their first year of eligibility. Because 10 candidates is the maximum for which to vote, I could not fit Tim Raines or Lee Smith this time after voting for them a year ago.
