Three Cleveland athletes with resumes worthy of Hall of Fame induction

Former Cleveland Indians shortstop Omar Vizquel fell short of selection for the National Baseball Hall of Fame for the third consecutive year, but by seeing another increase in votes to get him above the 50 percent mark, he will remain on the ballot for consideration in 2021. Vizquel earned 52.6 percent of the votes (209 out of 397) in his third year on the ballot, falling short of the required 319 for induction. With Vizquel once again not getting selected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame, it is just another Cleveland athlete who deserves a spot among the greats of his respective sport. A first-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in the 1978 NFL Draft, Matthews spent 16 years in Cleveland, where in 232 games, 216 of which were starts, he registered 76.5 quarterback sacks, 1,430 total tackles, 14 interceptions, 24 forced fumbles and 13 recoveries.
