The Baseball Writers’ Association of America will announce the 2014 MLB Hall of Fame class on Wednesday afternoon at 2 p.m. ET, as this year’s class of candidates will look to join managers Joe Torre, Tony LaRussa and Bobby Cox in earning enshrinement.

A total of 19 newcomers join 17 holdovers from last year’s ballot to make up this year’s candidates, and after no one earned induction last year, we could see a number of players join the all-time greats in Cooperstown this time around.

So here is a complete rundown of the 2014 candidates, as well as my final predictions for how the voting will shake out and who will wind up making up the 2014 MLB Hall of Fame class.


*Vote total predictions based on 569 possible ballots, the number cast last season, though more are possible.
