The 51 year old all-time home run leader in baseball is not anywhere close to making it to Cooperstown.

Despite being the all-time home run leader and showcasing incredible baseball talent during his career, it looks very unlikely that Barry Bonds will ever pass the Hall of Fame ballot during his eligible years as a consequence of his suspected/alleged PED use during his playing career.
Bonds, who has been recently named the new hitting coach for the Miami Marlins, stated in an interview,
"God knows I'm a Hall of Famer. I know that I'm a Hall of Fame player. I don't really need to get into that. I'll leave that to you guys to make that determination. That's not my fraternity."
He went on to say this:

"But in my fraternity, in Major League Baseball, there's not one player that ever could sit there and say that I'm not one. There's not a coach who ever coached me that says I'm not one."

Ken Griffey Jr. who has been selected in the 2016 Hall of Fame class with an almost-unanimous vote, supported Bonds when asked whether Bonds deserved to be in the Hall of Fame.

"Yeah. I think that overall, when you look what people have done, yeah. It's not my vote, so I can't vote for him. But if you look at what he's done, those numbers speak for themselves."

Sports fans, do you think Barry Bonds deserve to be selected into the Hall of Fame?

@Evan Yannetti Ken ABSOLUTELY is a role model, but this isn't about Ken or a comparison. Huge Griffey fan.... But even at the end of his career he wasn't the same player.
