Scott Rolen elected to Hall of Fame

Scott Rolen has been elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, it was announced today. The third baseman received 76.2% of the vote, just clearing the 75% threshold.

Todd Helton and Billy Wagner fell just short, with 72.2% and 68.1% of the vote, respectively. Andruw Jones and Gary Sheffield were the only other players to receive at least 50% of the vote.

Carlos Beltran, in his first year on the ballot, received just 46.5% of the vote — the same percentage as Jeff Kent. Beltran is a clear Hall of Famer based on performance, but his involvement in the sign stealing scandal with the Houston Astros in 2017 resulted in him losing support.
