The Baseball Writers’ Association of America failed to elect anyone into the Hall of Fame, this is the first since 1996.

Barry Bonds, the seven-time Most Valuable Player who holds the lifetime and single-season record for home runs, and Roger Clemens, a seven-time Cy Young Award winner who earned 354 career victories, appeared to be statistical shoo-ins for admission in their first year of eligibility.

However, the shadow of alleged steroid use made voting far more complex for members of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America.
