Barry Bonds will keep his home run record! By now it is no secret that the San Francisco giants player utilized the aid of performance enhancing drugs. Yet Bonds will still uphold his single-season home run record, which is 73, as well as his overall record of 762.
The fact that Bonds endured a trial for his offenses impedes on his chances of being accepted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Furthermore, it erodes his credibility and overall reputation. This should be punishment enough as many players, such as record setter Mark McGwire, have reportedly used steroids.
Many believe that Bonds is indirectly on trial for his poor public conduct and autonomous persona.
