Alan Trammell missed out this year on his chance to be voted in to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Barry Larkin made it.

The Baseball Hall of Fame will have a new member this year. Barry Larkin, the famed Cincinnati Reds shortstop, was voted in by the Baseball Writers Association of America with 86 percent of the vote. Larkin was the only player voted in to the 2011 class.

Arizona Diamondbacks coach Alan Trammell did not get in. Trammel received just 37 percent of the vote with nominees needing 75 percent for selection. Here's the results of the voting:
