Who Was Selected to the Baseball Hall of Fame?
The Baseball Writers Association of America will announce 2013 Hall of Fame Class at 1 p.m. on the MLB Network. St. Louis and Missouri are home to several Hall of Fame baseball players. And Florissant even has a few that call the city home.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch Hall of Fame baseball writer Rick Hummel reports the most anticipated Baseball Hall of Fame election in history will culminate this afternoon with the announcement of the vote on this year’s class by the Baseball Writers Association of America.
Who will get in—better yet, who will be left out from this class—has been the subject of debate for years.
Among those eligible for the first time: Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Mike Piazza, Craig Biggio and Sammy Sosa.
The 2013 Hall of Fame Class will be announced live on the MLB Network at 1 p.m. CST.
Hundreds of professional Major League Baseball players have come from Missouri, according to Baseball Almanac. A few of them, such as Yogi Berra and Earl Weaver are even Hall of Famers. For a full list of Hall of Fame players from Missouri, visit Baseball Almanac.

The Walk of Fame also features stars for Hall of Fame announcer Jack Buck and Harry Carey.
