Andre Dawson was elected to the Hall of Fame today, with 78% of the vote. Bert Blyleven and Roberto Alomar just missed making it. You can can read the full voting tally at the BBWAA site. Dawson and Blyleven both added about ten percentage points to their totals from last year's vote; Alomar was on the ballot for the first time this year.
Like a lot of sabermetricians, I'm not ecstatic about Dawson's election. His low OBP and walk totals stick out as a major negative. However, he was otherwise a great all-around ballplayer and reportedly a fine person. I will always admire the way he stuck it to Ueberroth and the "lords of the cartel" in 1987, daring owners to sign him to a contract, any contract, any salary. Dawson is certainly Hall-worthy.
Dave was called a "national treasure" by Rob Neyer. Seriously. Comments about this article can be sent to him through the miracle of e-mail.
