Mariano Rivera has done something no one else in baseball history has ever done — not Willie Mays, not Babe Ruth, not Stan Musial, not Tom Seaver, not even Ken Griffey Jr.
Rivera, the legendary ex-Yankees closer and baseball’s all-time saves leader, is the first player in history to be unanimously voted into the Hall of Fame.

Results from this year’s vote were announced Tuesday by the Baseball Writers Association of America, with Rivera one of four players voted in, along with Roy Halladay, Edgar Martinez and Mike Mussina.


But none of them were quite like Mo, who managed to get every single vote on 425 ballots cast by baseball writers. He topped Ken Griffey Jr., who set the record in 2016 with 99.32 percent of the vote, missing just three ballots.
