The Final Hoorah: Barry Bonds On HoF Ballot One Last Time

Published

on

This is it, the last year where the ever-long debate of should he get in, should he not get in, comes to a head. The “he” that I’m referring to is Barry Bonds and his stained past not just in Pittsburgh but in the history of baseball. With ESPN airing the Bonds special after the Gold Glove award show, everyone and their mother has sparked the conversation again.

In order to be inducted into Cooperstown, the eligible candidate must receive 75% of the votes. The last time Bonds was on the ballot, he received 61.8% of the votes, which was a small increase from his 60.8% the previous time before that. There will be more to come from the site on this matter, but until then, give us your thoughts. Should Bary Lamar Bonds be honored? Or should he be cast aside with the likes of Pete Rose and “Shoeless” Joe Jackson? You make the call.
