The numbers those two guys put up, we’re talking about a guy (Bonds) that is number one in home runs in the history of baseball, and you have a guy (Clemens) with the most Cy Youngs (获奖情况) in baseball. Obviously they have tremendous careers,” Rodriguez said at a news conference promoting his appearance at a golf tournament later this year, 根据 纽约邮报.

… Hopefully one day they both can be in the Hall of Fame because their careers are unbelievable.

Bonds and Clemens were both dominant players during their era of baseball. Bonds became one of the most fearsome players at the plate while Clemens was just as fierce on the mound.

Bonds retired as the home run king with 756 dingers in his career. Clemens put together a career in which he won seven Cy Young awards, two World Series rings and two pitching Triple Crowns.

前者 San Francisco Giants and Pirates outfielder Bonds congratulated David Ortiz for making it to the Hall of Fame but didn’t react to getting snubbed again.

Clemens released a statement on social media.

Hey y’all! I figured I’d give y’all a statement since it’s that time of the year again. My family and I put the HOF in the rear view 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,” 他写了. “… 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.

Clemens and Bonds have another shot later this year of getting into the Hall via the Today’s Game Era Committee. But if they fail, the committee doesn’t meet again until 2024.
