    NEW YORK (SI.com) -- In one of the tightest elections ever, Andre Dawson was the only player elected by the Baseball Writers Association of America to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

    Dawson received 77.9 percent of the vote, just above the 75 percent needed for enshrinement. Bert Blyleven got 74.2 percent, missing election by just five votes. Roberto Alomar, widely expected to be a shoo-in, finished third with 73.7 percent. Jack Morris and Barry Larkin were the only other players to top 50 percent.

    Blyleven was closer to getting in than I thought he would be. Loved to watch him pitch.

    I liked watching Roberto Alomar play when he was with Jays. Great player. Maybe next year.

    It seems only one or even two players get elected into the MLB Hall of Fame.

    I was very happy when I heard the news. He was one of my favorite players growing up.
