NEW YORK (AP) — Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas are among 19 newcomers on this year’s Hall of Fame ballot, joining a collection of steroid-tainted holdovers that include Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa.

Mike Mussina, Hideo Nomo, Kenny Rogers, Jeff Kent, Moises Alou and Luis Gonzalez also are among the players eligible to be voted on for the first time by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America.

The Hall said the 36-player ballot will include Armando Benitez, Sean Casey, Ray Durham, Eric Gagne, Jacque Jones, Todd Jones, Paul Lo Duca, Richie Sexson, J.T. Snow and Mike Timlin.

Results will be announced Jan. 8 and inductions held July 24 at Cooperstown.

Last year, the BBWAA failed for the first time since 1996 to produce any inductees.
