Roger Clemens Responds After Final Hall-Of-Fame Snub

Roger Clemens along with Barry Bonds & Curt Schilling all fell short of 75% vote requirement by the Baseball Writers' Association of America (BBWAA) for enshrinement in Cooperstown.

Former Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz was the lone inductee.

This was the final year for Clemens, Bonds and Sammy Sosa to appear on the BBWAA ballot as they reached their 10-year limit on the ballot.

In response to the snub, Clemens posted a statement to twitter writing:

“My family and I put the HOF in the rearview mirror ten years ago. I didn’t play baseball to get into the HOF. I played to make a generational difference in the lives of my family. Then focus on winning championships while giving back to my community and fans as well. It was my passion. I gave it all I had, the right way, for my family and for the fans who supported me."

Clemens added, "I would like to thanks those two took the time to look at the facts and vote for me. Hopefully, everyone can now close this book and keep their eyes forward focusing on what is really important in life. All love!"

Last year, Curt Schilling got 71.1% of the vote, this year he got 54 fewer votes? Why because he’s been a vocal in his political beliefs which doesn't jive with the woke baseball writers.
