NEW YORK (AP) -- For several years, baseball fans have argued whether Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa belong in the Hall of Fame.
Starting Wednesday, the voters who will actually decide that debate can get to work.
Bonds, Clemens and Sosa are set to show up on the Hall ballot for the first time, with all sides eager to find out whether drug allegations will block the former stars from reaching the shrine.
The 2013 ballot will be announced at noon EST.
Craig Biggio, Mike Piazza and Curt Schilling are certain to be among the other first-time eligibles. Jack Morris, Jeff Bagwell and Tim Raines are the top holdover candidates.
Jack Morris is a former Twins player from the 1991 World Championship team. Morris is most memorable to Twins fans for his game seven performance in the '91 World Series. He threw ten innings to beat out John Smoltz and the Braves to secure the Twins their second title.
Longtime members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America will vote through next month and the results will be announced Jan. 9.
