Looks like the fifth time isn't the charm for former Cardinals baseball slugger Mark McGwire. 

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that not only was it the fifth unsuccessful bid for McGwire, but also his worst vote total showing yet. This coming after McGwire admitted that he used steroids.

The Post-Dispatch has the vote totals:

McGwire was named on 115 of the 581 ballots cast, or 19.8 percent. He received 23.7 pct. of the votes cast in 2010 and 21.9 percent -- his previous low -- in 2009. Roberto Alomar (90 pct.) and Bert Blyleven (79.7 pct.) earned election this year.
