CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Omar Vizquel came up short again for the Baseball Hall of Fame and seems to be at peace with the snub.
Vizquel, an 11-time Gold Glove shortstop, released a statement Wednesday night after getting just 49.1% of the vote in balloting announced Tuesday.
To qualify for induction, a player must get a minimum of 75 percent.
Vizquel’s HOF chances were expected to be damaged by domestic abuse allegations lodged by his wife.
Vizquel, 53, played 24 seasons in the major leagues for 6 different teams, including Cleveland.
