Five former Arizona players are up for induction in the class of 2013.

The Arizona Diamondbacks have plenty of former players -- five to be exact -- eligible as candidates for Major League Baseball's class of 2013 in the Hall of Fame.

Pitcher Curt Schilling, third baseman Jeff Cirillo, center field Steve Finley, right fielder Shawn Green and first baseman Reggie Sanders are among the 19 candidates for this year's class, which is headlined by Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa and Mike Piazza.

A candidate must receive 75 percent of the vote from Baseball Writers' Association of America members to get inducted into the Hall of Fame, which is widely considered the sport's top honor. Former Cincinatti Reds short stop Barry Larkin was the only player inducted in the class of 2012.

The 2013 Hall of Fame inductees will be announced Jan. 9 at 2 p.m. ET. The announcement will be broadcast live on the MLB Network and MLB.com.
