Williams, Mueller top newcomers on Hall ballot
Williams, Mueller top newcomers on Hall ballot, joining holdovers Larkin, Morris and Smith
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' Former AL batting champions Bernie Williams and Bill Mueller are among 13 newcomers on baseball's 2012 Hall of Fame ballot, joining top holdovers Barry Larkin, Jack Morris, Lee Smith and Jeff Bagwell.

The 2013 ballot that will be sent out late next year figures to be among the most controversial, with seven-time MVP Barry Bonds and seven-time Cy Young Award winner Roger Clemens eligible for the first time along with Craig Biggio, Mike Piazza, Curt Schilling and Sammy Sosa.



Bonds, Clemens and Sosa have been implicated in the use of performance-enhancing drugs, allegations they have denied.
