Barry Bonds is baseball’s all-time home run king with 762. He remains outside of the Baseball Hall of Fame.

The reason involves his connection to performance-enhancing drugs and the BALCO case from the early 2000s.

But, in his fifth year on the ballot, his chances of earning the necessary 75 percent of the vote for enshrinement reached their highest number.

Here is how Bonds has done in the balloting for the Baseball Hall of Fame:

2013: 206 votes, 36.2% of ballots

2014: 198 votes, 34.7% of ballots

2015: 202 votes, 36.8% of ballots

2016: 245 votes, 53.8% of ballots
