The 2022 Baseball Hall of Fame class will be announced Tuesday night, a monumental year with several of baseball’s greats set to fall off the ballot and others making their debut – as PED questions cloud everything.
Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens are in their 10th and final year on the ballot and with about half of the vote accounted for in Ryan Thibodeaux world-famous tracker, it’s not looking great for the seven-time MVP or the seven-time Cy Young winner.
Meanwhile, Alex Rodriguez and David Ortiz appear for the first time
