Each year, the Baseball Writers’ Association of America gets a few things right – and quite a bit wrong – when it votes to elect new members to the Hall of Fame. This year, three players were inducted: Jeff Bagwell, Tim Raines and Ivan Rodriguez. The BBWAA certainly was correct in choosing these three players to be immortalized.
