The Baseball Hall of Fame conducted its annual vote to see who will be inducted in in July, and once again, former pitcher Curt Schilling missed out.

Eligible players need 75 percent of the vote to make the Hall, and Schilling - in his eighth year of eligibility - received 70 percent, which was a significant jump from the 60.9 percent he received in 2019, per WEEI. Schilling, who has been outspoken on his conservative values, has two years of eligibility remaining.

Will 2021 be the year he finally makes it?
