The ‘Cooperstown Members Who Got 90% Vote’ Quiz (www.yardbarker.com)

All votes have been cast and revealed, and for the first time since 2013,

enshrined in Cooperstown this year. To become a Hall of Famer, players must appear on at least 75% of the ballots. Curt Schilling came the closest, reaching 71.1%. He was followed by Barry Bonds (61.8%) and Roger Clemens (61.1%). Schilling was nonplussed with the results, to say the least, so much so that he asked to be taken off next year’s ballot. As it turns out, that may not even be possible. Schilling, Bonds and Clemens now have just one year of eligibility remaining, and with zero players elected in 2021, next year’s vote is likely to be highly-contentious. Should they not be elected in 2022, the three could still get into The Hall via the Veterans Committee, a backstop that seemed unfathomable during their dominant playing days.

Which brings us to today’s quiz of the day. A total of 36 MLB players have been elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame with 90 percent or more of the vote from the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. So with that in mind, how many of the 36 can you name in six minutes? 

Good luck!
