Roberto Alomar Elected to Baseball Hall of Fame along with Bert Blyleven

Two-time World Series champions, Roberto Alomar and Bert Blyleven, were easily named to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, after falling shy of the required votes to enter last year.

This time both players made it, receiving more than enough votes allowing them to receive recognition among baseball’s greatest legends.

Alomar was named on 90 percent of the record 581 ballots turned in this year by hall of fame voters. After making his major-league debut for San Diego in 1988, Alomar left for Toronto where he was a big part of the Blue Jays’ back-to-back World Series titles in 1992 and 1993. Alomar’s plaque will represent the second baseman sporting a Blue Jays cap. Alomar signed with the Baltimore Orioles in 1995 and had continued success with the ball club, appearing in the American League Championship Series in 1996 and 1997, though the Orioles were defeated in both series.

On November 4, 1998 Alomar signed a 4-year deal with the Cleveland Indians. It was his time spent with the Tribe that defined Alomar as one of the greatest defensive second baseman to ever play the game. Teamed with Omar Vizquel at shortstop, the two would wow the crowds at Jacobs Field with their incredible fielding and finesse for the next four seasons. Alomar would be traded to the Mets before the 2002 season, and spent the next three years bouncing around to the White Sox, Diamondbacks and finally the Tampa Bay Devil Rays before calling it a career before the 2005 season started.
