Former Houston Astros great Craig Biggio speaks at a press conference about being on the ballot for the 2013 class of the Baseball Hall of Fame Monday, Nov. 26, 2012, in Houston.

 

NEW YORK (AP) — Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa are set to appear on the Hall of Fame ballot for the first time, and fans will soon find out whether drug allegations can block the former stars from reaching baseball's shrine.

The ballot will be officially announced Wednesday.

Craig Biggio, Mike Piazza and Curt Schilling are certain to be among the other first-time eligible players. Jack Morris, Jeff Bagwell and Tim Raines are the top holdover candidates.

Members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America will vote through next month. The much-awaited results will be announced Jan. 9.

Bonds, Clemens and Sosa each posted some of the biggest numbers in the game's history, but were all tainted by accusations they used performance-enhancing drugs.
