For the first time since 1996 and for just the eighth time in history, the Baseball Writers’ Association of America (BBWAA) has failed to elect anyone to the Hall of Fame.

On Wednesday, the BBWAA announced its 2013 results live on MLB Network, and not one of the 37 candidates eligible for election was named to the necessary 75% of ballots. First-time candidate Craig Biggio came closest, as he was named on 68.2% of ballots (39 votes short of election).

As a consequence, no living inductee will be present at the ceremonies in Cooperstown for the first time since 1960. The Veterans’ Committee previously voted in 19th-century star Deacon White, former Yankees owner Jacob Ruppert and umpire Hank O’Day, all deceased.
