BOSTON (CBS) — The results are in, and once again, Curt Schilling has come up short in Hall of Fame voting.

The Hall of Fame announced on Wednesday that former Atlanta Braves pitchers Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine, along with former slugger Frank Thomas, earned enough votes to be enshrined in Cooperstown this upcoming summer. Maddux received a whopping 97.2 percent of votes, with Glavine earning 91.9 percent and Thomas getting 83.7 percent.

Former Astros second baseman Craig Biggio came up just short, earning 74.8 percent of the vote. A player must receive 75 percent of the vote to be inducted.

Schilling, 47, was on the ballot for the second time, and the former pitcher for the Orioles, Astros, Phillies, Diamondbacks and Red Sox received just 29.2 percent of the vote. Last year, he earned 38.8 percent of the votes, a year in which no players earned induction into the Hall.

Schilling’s strongest case for the Hall may be in his postseason statistics. In 19 career playoff starts, Schilling went 11-2 with a 2.23 ERA, 0.968 WHIP, an 8.1 strikeout-to-walk ratio, winning three World Series and sharing a World Series MVP Award with Randy Johnson in 2001.

Glavine, 47, grew up in Billerica, where he is a member of the high school hall of fame. He was drafted by the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings in 1984, but he elected to play baseball for the Braves, where he’d pitch from 1987-2002 and again for one more season in 2008. He won 305 games in his career, as well as a pair of Cy Young Awards and 10 All-Star appearances.
