Hall of Fame 2014 vote time was glamorous for Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, and Frank Thomas. The 2014 Baseball Hall of Fame vote indicates that the three players will be heading to Cooperstown. The news was announced on Wednesday (Jan. 8), with the three great players joining the likes of Walter Johnson, Babe Ruth, and Lou Gehrig among the all-time greats of the game.

When it comes to the voting results, Maddux received 97.2 percent of the votes, Glavine drew 91.9, and Thomas had 83.7. Just behind them, though, Craig Biggio received 74.8 percent, putting him just two votes shy of getting elected during his second year on the ballot. This seems to indicate that there is enough support to put him in Cooperstown next year.

Jack Morris only garnered 61.5 percent of the vote during his final year on the ballot, with her overall percentages lowering from where he was at in 2013. Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens also drew much less support this year, showing that the voting body may not be ready to put anyone linked to the PED scandal into the elite company.

The 2014 Hall of Fame vote and results will be debated for weeks, but Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, and Frank Thomas are going to celebrated this summer when they get their plaques in Cooperstown.
