Former Seattle Mariner designated hitter Edgar Martinez was on the ballot of 25.2% of voters in this year’s Hall of Fame vote. He had received over 30 percent the last two years. Martinez was a fan favorite in the northwest, racking up 2247 hits, 309 home runs and a .312 average in 18 seasons in a Seattle uniform.
Former Mariner pitcher Randy Johnson is eligible next year and outfielder Ken Griffey Jr. will be in 2016.
Former Braves pitchers Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine and former White Sox slugger Frank Thomas were voted into the Hall Wednesday.
