Clemens, Bonds Rejected in Steroid-Stained Hall of Fame Voting

Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds were snubbed in voting for baseball’s Hall of Fame, adding the game’s two most-decorated players to the list of retired stars bypassed because of links to performance-enhancing drugs.

None of the 37 candidates on this year’s ballot received the necessary 75 percent of the vote needed for induction, the first time since 1996 that the Baseball Writers Association of America didn’t elect anyone.

It also means that this year’s induction class won’t have any living members, the first time that has happened since 1965.
