Marc Ecko (a fashion designer) bought Barry Bonds' record-breaking home run ball for $752,467 only to leave the decision of what should happen to the ball up to the public. He set up a Web site for fans to vote on the ball's fate which included: branding it with an asterick, sending it to the Hall of Fame museum unblemished, or launching it into space. The option to brand it received the most votes, and so that will be done. The asterisk suggests that Bonds' record is tainted by alleged steroid use.
And speaking of Barry Bonds...he WILL NOT be on the Giants' roster next season...I repeat, Barry Bonds WILL NOT be on the Giant's roster next season. That's dirty San Fran!!!
