Former Twin Jacque Jones Gets Hall of Fame Vote
Former Minnesota Twins outfielder Jacque Jones received a Hall of Fame vote on Wednesday afternoon.
Jones played for Minnesota for seven years. He then spent time with the Cubs, Tigers and Marlins. In his ten-year career, he had a lifetime batting average of .277, hit 165 home runs, drove in 630 RBIs, and stole 82 bases.
Jones took to Twitter yesterday and appreciated the vote for the Hall of Fame.
"Appreciate my tweeples for helping me get that one HOF vote. Seriously that is awesome."
Even though it may have been a cool gesture giving Jones a Hall of Fame vote, it made Craig Biggio wait one more year. Biggio fell two votes shy of being elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.
Three total members were elected to Cooperstown. Baseball writers voted Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas into the Hall of Fame on Wednesday.
