NEW YORK (AP) - Chipper Jones, Jim Thome and Omar Vizquel are among 19 first-time candidates on the Baseball Writers' Association of America ballot for the Hall of Fame.

They are joined by Johan Santana and Chris Carpenter. Also among the newcomers to the 33-man ballot announced Monday are Jamie Moyer, Andruw Jones, Carlos Lee, Kevin Millwood, Carlos Zambrano and Johnny Damon.

His laid back attitude and appearance made Johnny Damon a favorite among fans during his tenure with the Red Sox from 2002 to 2005. His contributions to the 2004 World Series championship also didn't hurt his popularity

Trevor Hoffman, who fell five votes short last year, leads the holdovers that include Vladimir Guerrero, Edgar Martinez, Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds, Mike Mussina and Curt Schilling.

Some of the Red Sox notables who will return for another try at the Hall of Fame ballot include Curt Schilling, Manny Ramirez (both shown here accepting their World Series rings on April 11, 2005) and Roger Clemens

Roy Halladay will not appear on the ballot for another year. The retired pitcher died Nov. 7 when the plane he was piloting crashed off Florida.
