Steroid-tainted players Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, and Sammy Sosa will not be inducted into the Baseball's Hall of Fame, and neither will any other player this year. 

The hall and the Baseball Writers' Association of America says Bonds received 36.2 percent of the vote. Clemens received 37.6 and Sosa received 12.5 percent. This marks the second time in four decades voters have failed to elect any candidate for the hall of fame.

The candidate with the most votes was Craig Biggio with 68.2 percent who was shy of the 75 percent needed.
