Michele Norris talks with baseball writer Paul Ladewski of The Daily Southtown in suburban Chicago. Eligible to vote for admission of players into the Hall of Fame, Ladewski submitted a blank ballot, because he felt he did not know enough about steroid use by players between 1993 and 2004.

Ladewski says he doesn't consider his action a protest vote, but rather a declaration that he needs to know more about performance-enhancing drug use before he can comfortably make a vote.
