The chances Barry Bonds makes the MLB Hall of Fame are slim to none, and that's putting things nicely. To get in, players need 75% of votes from the baseball writers. Last year, Bonds actually saw his votes drop from the year before to a measly 34.7%, all but cementing the fact that nobody wants the steroid homerun king to make it in. Bonds is however making a case for himself when it comes to another illustrious group, the Twitter Hall of Fame, and he may be on the first ballot.
Bonds is new to the world of Twitter, but his presence is already being felt. Although he's not quite up to par with Joel Embiid, Bonds has his own swag on the social media juggernaut, and it's actually much more appealing then the cold personality we grew to know over the years. Need examples? Check this gem Bonds dropped just the other say for his first Throwback Thursday.

One thing Bonds never lost was the love from San Francisco, as he hit up the 49er's stadium opener with another sports legend from the area.

And in case you were unaware, Barry's been keeping during his retirement years, and even picked up biking with Olympic cyclist Mari Holden.

Sure, Barry wants to be in the real Hall of Fame, but when the odds are stacked against you, this may be the next best thing. Welcome Barry to the 2014 class of the Twitter Hall of Fame. You deserve it.
@BarryBonds Gracias my bro!! See you soon in Cooperstown
