Poll finds little support for Bonds, ClemensNEW YORK - Baseball’s all-time home run king and its most decorated pitcher likely will be shut out of the Hall of Fame in January.
A survey shows that Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, as well as slugger Sammy Sosa, will not have enough votes to get into Cooperstown.
With steroid scandals still very much on the minds of longtime members of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America as they cast their ballots, the trio failed to muster even 50 percent support among the 112 voters contacted by the AP - nearly one-fifth of those eligible to choose. Candidates need 75 percent for election.
