How many votes does Barry Bonds need for Hall of Fame?

Yet again, neither Barry Bonds nor Roger Clemens earned enough votes to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. He has counted 56.6 percent of the expected ballots, meaning Bonds needs 89.4 percent of the remaining ballots to vote for him. Despite his dominance, he could not improve enough on the 45.2% of the Hall of Fame votes he got a year ago, capturing 54.1% to stay ahead of Bonds, but remain well behind the back. But the trio, all linked to performance-enhancing drugs in their careers, will have to wait at least another year to achieve baseball's highest honor. Bonds is major league baseball's all-time home run leader at 762 and also ranks third all-time in RBIs (1.996).

Those honors instead belong to Tim Raines, Jeff Bagwell and Ivan Rodriguez, who were elected to the 2017 class Wednesday. Meanwhile, Clemens won a record seven Cy Youngs in his 24 Major League Baseball seasons that saw him total 354 wins and the third-most strikeouts of all-time (4,672).
