Congratulations to the Hawk

There was only one Baseball Hall of Fame inductee by the BBWAA this year, outfielder Andre Dawson.

Here's the complete ballot, thanks to the indispensable Baseball-Reference.com.  Note that a total of 405 votes was needed for induction, so Blyleven came up five votes shy and Alomar eight votes shy.  I suspect, therefore, that both will be inducted next year.

Did someone really say to themselves, "David Segui -- now that guy was a Hall of Famer!"
