Ken Griffey Jr. and Mike Piazza were elected to the 2016 class of the Baseball Hall of Fame by the BBWAA.
Griffey received 99.32% of the vote, the highest percentage in history ahead of Tom Seaver (98.84%) and Nolan Ryan (98.79%). In his 22 years in the bigs, The Kid flashed a magnetic personality while socking 630 home runs and finishing out with 1,836 RBI and a triple-slash of .284/.370/.538. He also stole 184 bases. He had nine seasons with at least 30 homers, seven of which saw him surpass 40 homers--including back-to-back seasons with 56 long balls in 1997 and 1998. That 1997 season earned him AL MVP honors. Joining him in Cooperstown will be Piazza, who fell 24 votes short in 2015 but managed to draw 83% of the vote this time around. Like Griffey, he notched nine seasons with at least 30 homers, ending his career with 427 dingers, 1,335 RBI and a batting line of .308/.377/.545 across 16 seasons. Jeff Bagwell (71.6%) and Tim Raines (69.8%) came closest to join the pair, but neither drew the requisite 75% on balloting. Jan 6 - 6:10 PM
