Maddux won't be unanimous Hall selection

Quote:
NEW YORK -- Greg Maddux won't be a unanimous selection for the Hall of Fame.

Ken Gurnick of MLB.com, a former reporter for the Los Angeles Herald Examiner, says the only player he voted for was pitcher Jack Morris. Morris is on the Baseball Writers' Association of America ballot for the 15th and final time after falling 42 votes shy last year.

Gurnick said Tuesday that he excluded "everybody from the Steroid Era."

"I just don't know who did and who didn't," Gurnick said, adding: "Some people quibble over when the era starts, but the bulk of his career was in my opinion well before all of the widespread use of performance-enhancing drugs."

Maddux is among three high-profile players on the ballot for the first time, joined by former Atlanta Braves teammate Tom Glavine and Chicago White Sox slugger Frank Thomas. Holdovers include Craig Biggio, who topped voting at 68 percent last year, when the BBWAA failed to elect anyone for only the second time in four decades. This year's totals will be announced Wednesday.

Maddux, a 355-game winner, could break Tom Seaver's record of highest vote percentage of 98.84 set in 1992.
