Baseball HOF cuts eligibility requirement

Cooperstown, N.Y. (AP) -- The Baseball Hall of Fame has reduced the number of years a player can remain eligible to be voted in by the writers to 10 years from 15, giving Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens less time to be considered.

The Hall of Fame announced the changes Saturday. They are effective immediately and will be reflected in 2015 Hall of Fame voting by the Baseball Writers' Association of America.

Bonds and Clemens, record-breaking stars whose careers have been tainted by allegations of performance-enhancing drug use, have been on the ballot the last two years.

The BBWAA will allow three players -- Don Mattingly, Lee Smith and Alan Trammell -- who have been on the ballot between 10-15 years to complete a 15-year stay.
