Braves News: 2024 Hall of Fame class, prospect list and more

Atlanta Braves news and notes from Tuesday

MLB: World Series-Arizona Diamondbacks at Texas Rangers Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The Baseball Hall of Fame grew by three on Tuesday night as Adrian Beltre, Joe Mauer, and Todd Helton make up the 2024 class. The three will be officially inducted on July 21, alongside former manager Jim Leyland.

Beltre and Mauer were each elected in their first year on the ballot. Helton, however, spent six years on the ballot before becoming a Hall of Famer.

At least 75% of votes are required to be elected, and former Atlanta Brave Billy Wagner just missed the mark with 73.8%. Gary Sheffield also fell short at 63.9% in his final year on the ballot. Andruw Jones ended with 61.6% of votes, while Carlos Beltran earned 57.1%.

Despite this year’s shortcomings, there is still plenty of opportunity for more Braves’ representation in the HOF.
