Rich "Goose" Gossage's long wait to get into the Baseball Hall of Fame is finally over, but Mark McGwire's vigil seemingly will go on for years. Gossage, a dominating reliever who in 22 seasons pitched for nine teams including the New York Yankees, San Diego Padres and Chicago White Sox, received 466 of the 543 votes (85.8 percent) cast by the Baseball Writers' Association of America. In his ninth year of Hall of Fame eligibility, Gossage easily eclipsed the 75 percent total required for induction after falling 21 votes short last year, when first-time candidates Cal Ripken Jr. and Tony Gwynn were elected.

Baseball's Hall of Fame is filled to the brim with big swingers and .300 hitters, but acrobatic shortstop Ozzie Smith proved yesterday that there is room at Cooperstown for a little guy with a big heart and a legendary way with leather. The aptly nicknamed Wizard of Oz, who defied both convention and gravity during a 19-year career with the San Diego Padres and St. Louis Cardinals, was named on 91 percent of the ballots cast by voting members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America to gain induction in his first year of eligibility.

There's only one route leading into the village of Cooperstown, N.Y., so it doesn't take much to create a traffic jam. And at the current pace, it won't take long to start one with those who came close but failed to gain election into the Baseball Hall of Fame.This year's close call for Orlando Cepeda, who missed by seven votes in his 15th and final year on the Baseball Writers' Association of America ballot, again emphasized just how difficult it is to enter the Hall of Fame. And the near-misses by the other leading candidates -- Phil Niekro (69 votes short)

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- At first, you don't believe it. Jim Rice in the Senior Professional Association. How can this be?If you want proof that there's no telling the lengths to which a man will go if he truly loves his profession, consider the gamble Rice is taking in the 2-year-old league. The fact that Rice is a former Boston Red Sox superstar and a Hall of Fame candidate makes no difference. He says there are some things you can't accomplish sitting on the outside looking in."It's my life," Rice says when asked why he's playing baseball when he could be enjoying the "retirement" forced upon him in November 1989 when the Red Sox decided not to retain him. "I've played it all my life.

Wasn't exactly a stretch of the imagination to predict Rickey Henderson and Jim Rice would make it into the Hall of Fame. Rickey was a no-brainer, and Rice's status as a borderline candidate probably had something to do with his horrible relationship with the baseball media.

I want to be known for something." - Ben Grieve, who has hit into 26 double plays this year and isn't exactly aiming for Jim Rice's major-league record of 36 It's a fact: With Troy Percival and key setup men Mike Fyhrie and Al Levine injured, the Angels are using three pitchers who were at Triple-A 10 days ago (Lou Pote, Eric Weaver and Juan Alvarez.)
