Bonds, All Other Candidates Rejected From Baseball Hall of Fame
For months, there’s been speculation among San Francisco Giants fans and baseball fans everywhere about whether all-time home run slugger Barry Bonds would be voted into the Hall of Fame, given the widespread belief he used performance-enhancing drugs.
On Wednesday, the Baseball Writers Association of America ended that speculation with a resounding rejection of Bonds, along with every other candidate on the ballot. Other candidates included pitcher Roger Clemens and slugger Sammy Sosa. What all the rejected players have in common were ties to baseball's steroid era in the 1990s and early 2000s.
Host Tara Siler talks with Ann Killion, a sports writer with The San Francisco Chronicle who has written about her position not to vote for players suspected of steriod abuse.
