It’s official. Jeff Bagwell, Tim Raines and Ivan Rodriguez are MLB Hall of Famers.

The former two, after seven and 10 years on the ballot, respectively, led the way in the 2017 vote, while Pudge will enter Cooperstown as a prestigious first-ballot inductee.

Trevor Hoffman and Vlad Guerrero each came up just short, while Edgar Martinez, Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens all made significant strides from the previous year and are looking like stronger bets for the near future.

Here’s a complete look at the voting results:
