Schilling Pulling 41.5% Of Public HOF Voting

Thanks to BaseballThinkFactory's Darren Viola (by way of NBCHardBallTalk's Craig Calcaterra), we now know where Red Sox legend Curt Schilling stands in publicly-released Hall of Fame balloting. With about 14% of the total vote in, Schilling is pulling 41.5% of the vote—well below the 75% threshold needed for enshrinement. Thus far, four players would make the cut—Greg Maddux, Billerica's Tom Glavine, Frank Thomas and (somewhat surprisingly) Craig Biggio. Former Red Sox closer Lee Smith is getting just 23.2% of the public vote.
