Today, some more baseball legends could be elected into the hall of fame.

There are several candidates on last year’s ballot who are in the running again this year.

On of them includes former Minnesota Twins pitcher and St. Paul native Jack Morris.

Morris played for the twins for in 1991, won 18 games and was named World Series MVP.

Last year, he got 67 percent of the vote to enter the hall of fame, which was just short of the 75 percent needed to be elected.

The induction could serve as the ultimate day of reckoning for the “Steroids Era.”

Thirty-seven nominees have been implicated for performance enhancing drugs, including Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens.

Players are elected for their record, playing ability, integrity, sportsmanship, character and contributions to their team.

The results of this year’s group will be announced around 1 p.m.
