(WNFL) - Three former Milwaukee Brewers are among 19 new candidates on the Baseball Hall-of-Fame ballot. They are first baseman Richie Sexson, starter Hideo Nomo, and closer Eric Gagne (gon-yay). Gagne won a Cy Young Award in 2003 with the Dodgers, and he pitched the last of his 10 big league seasons in Milwaukee in 2008. Sexson spent three-and-a-half years with the Brewers. He was an All-Star for the Crew in 2002, and he played in all 162 games at first base in '03 just before he was dealt to Arizona. Nomo was the National League's rookie-of-the-year in 1995, and he threw two career no-hitters. He went 12-and-8 in his only season in Milwaukee in 1999. Players must be named on 75-percent of ballots to be elected to Cooperstown. Players can stay on the ballot for 15 years, as long as they get five-percent of the vote in any one year. Minnesota pitching star Jack Morris is in his 15th and final year of eligibility. Pitchers Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine top the newcomers, along with White Sox slugger Frank Thomas. Craig Biggio returns after getting the highest vote total a year ago with 68-percent -- seven-percent short for enshrinement.
