The results of the 2022 National Baseball Hall of Fame election will be announced exclusively on MLB Network on Tuesday, January 25 live at 6pm. ET as part of a four-hour announcement show beginning at 4pm ET.
The program will feature National Baseball Hall of Fame President Josh Rawitch revealing the results live from the Hall of Fame Plaque Gallery in Cooperstown, as voted by the Baseball Writer’s Association.
Anchored by Greg Amsinger, Brian Kenny and Lauren Shehadi, MLB Network’s extensive Hall of Fame election coverage will include analysis from Bob Costas, Harold Reynolds and others.
Cleveland Guardians manager Terry “Tito” Francona, esteemed baseball reporter Tim Kurkjian and our very own legend, MLBbro.com founder, MLB journalist and Hall of Fame voter Rob Parker will also offer experienced analysis on the selection results and more.
“It’s definitely an honor and privilege to share the TV set with some of the best people who have ever covered MLB the last 30 plus years,” said Parker, who started covering MLB in 1986 for the Daily News in New York. “It’s a historic night, too. We will be live to see his Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens – two of the greatest to play the game – get in the Hall via the writers vote on their 10th and final try. That will be grand theater for sure.”

The announcement show will examine a polarizing and controversial topic as Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, arguably the two best to ever do it at their respective positions, are in their 10th and final year on the ballot.
Rob has been adamant about his belief that the PED allegations of the late 1990s and early 2000s should not keep these two titans of the game out of Cooperstown.
In fact, Rob and Brian Kenny had a heated debate about the Hall of Fame worthiness of these players on a previous episode of MLB Network. Bringing these two guys together for an announcement special is sure to create fireworks, evoke emotions and keep the viewers locked in at the edge of their seats.
Will Bonds and Clemens finally make it? The only baseball question more significant than that is, when will the lockout end?
