CLEVELAND — Cleveland Indians legends Omar Vizquel and Manny Ramirez did not make the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Only two people made it into the Hall of Fame this year: Larry Walker and Derek Jeter.

Both Vizquel and Ramírez have previously been on the ballot.

Vizquel's popularity is increasing though, he had 52.6% of the vote total, which is 10% more than last year.

Ramirez recorded 28.2% of the vote total, which is 6% more than last year.

Other Indians that were nominated but didn't get in were Jeff Kent, Jason Giambi and Cliff Lee.

Players have to get at least 75% of the vote to get into the Hall of Fame.
