en.wikipedia.org

Baseball's Hall of Fame will be inducting three ex-players this summer. Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas have been elected by the baseball writers and will be inducted in Cooperstown July 27.

Once again players tainted by the steroid era failed to make the cut. The group includes Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Rafael Palmeiro, Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire, who all saw their support drop.

In baseball news, Yoenis Cespedes of the Oakland Athletics won the Home Run Derby. He edged Washington's 20-year-old Bryce Harper 9-8 in the final round of the eight-player competition.

In tonight’s All-Star game, the Mets' Matt Harvey will be the starting pitcher for the National League and Detroit's Max Scherzer for the American League. Harvey becomes the first pitcher from the host team to start an All-Star game since Houston's Roger Clemens in 2004 and just the 11th overall.
