The Real Home Run King has spoken…

Henry “Hank” Aaron, former Atlanta Braves baseball player, set the Major League Baseball record with 755 homeruns in his career; A mark that was in place for 33 years, until Barry Bonds broke it in 2007.  Bonds, under a lot of speculation of steroid use, is not viewed as the real homerun king because of his allegations.  Aaron was asked recently how he felt about the players with steroids going into the Hall of Fame and he said, “You put these guys in, put an asterisk beside their names; to be safe, that’s the only way I see you can do it.  I played the game long enough to know it is impossible for players, I don’t care who it is, to hit 70-plus home runs [in one season, which Bonds and Mark McGwire accomplished]. It just does not happen.”  When asked if he would boycott, he said “I have to accept them.  I’m only one person, but if somebody votes somebody into the Hall of Fame [who did steroids], if possible, I would be there to welcome them.

All those guys were roided up–McGwire, Sosa, Bonds, etc…Shout out to “Hammerin Hank”..
