Craig Biggio narrowly misses Hall Of Fame today

From WiKi today

Biggio first appeared on the writers’ ballot for the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2013 the earliest possible year of consideration. He led all Hall of Fame vote-getters by being named on 68.2% of ballots cast, however this was still 39 votes shy of reaching the 75% threshold that is required by the BBWAA for induction. The following year he once again failed to garner enough votes to be inducted, finishing two votes shy with a voting percentage of 74.8%. This ties him with Nellie Fox (1985) and Pie Traynor (1947) for smallest margin not to get into the Hall.
