Rivera is the first player ever to be elected with 100% of the vote. Halladay and Mussina received 85.4% of the vote, while Mike Mussina received 76.7% of the vote.

Halladay was killed in a plane crash in the Gulf of Mexico in Nov. 2017. He will be the first player inducted posthumously since 2013 when Deacon White, Hank O’Day, and Jacob Ruppert were inducted into the Class of 2013 posthumously.

Roberto Alomar was the first Blue Jays player into the Hall of Fame in 2011.

His career spanned from 1998 through 2013. He spent the first 12 years of his career with the Blue Jays and the last four years with the Phillies.
