  • Fate of Bonds' 756 Ball

    I haven't seen this posted in the MLB thread or in any other thread and decided that people here might want part of this...

    From Yahoo!Sports:
    The fate of Barry Bonds' record-breaking home run ball is now in the public's hands after its buyer announced Monday he was taking votes on whether to give the ball to the Hall of Fame, brand it with an asterisk or blast it into space.

    Fashion designer Marc Ecko revealed himself as Saturday's winning bidder in the online auction for the ball that Bonds hit last month to break Hank Aaron's record of 755 home runs. The final selling price for No. 756 was $752,467, well above most predictions.

    Ecko had not even taken possession of the ball before setting up a Web site that lets visitors vote on which of the three outcomes they think the ball most deserves. He plans to announce the final tally after voting ends Sept. 25.

      I voted to put it in the Hall...its not the ball's fault that the person who hit it is involved in controversy

            I haven't voted yet because I can't decide but I'm with that logic...I mean I hate Bond's and hate that he broke the record, but I think it is best for the game to put the ball in there...I mean if later we find out for 100% certainty he used steroids or something happens where it doesn't count or something, then take it out and do whatever

              Blast it. It'd be hilarious.

                      That's the worst option. This is all speculation (albeit a closely true speculation) but if it were to be found out that Bonds was clean, it would be an embarassment to baseball.

                      I say give it to the Hall, maybe on some sort of loan, or lease...

                          Would they accept it though. I cant see Cooperstown accepting this act of "vandilism". I mean this guy is famous for graffiti.

                            He needs to give it to the Hall of Fame. It belongs there, and no dumbass asterisk crap should be applied and no shooting to the moon uselessness.

                              Father - Well timmy, when you break a record, and are accused of taking steriods, thats what happens
