Brian Roberts falls off Hall of Fame ballot; other former Orioles finish short of induction

Longtime Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts, one of 18 first-time candidates, will not appear on the ballot again next year after falling short of the 5% threshold needed to remain eligible. Right-handed pitcher Curt Schilling and outfielder Sammy Sosa, who had brief Orioles tenures at the beginning and end of their careers, respectively, exceeded that mark in the voting but came up shy of the 75% needed for induction. Both will appear on the ballot of a ninth time in 2021; players can be on the ballot for up to 10 years.
