BONDS CAN HIT ALL THE HOME RUNS HE WANTS, HANK AARON WILL ALWAYS BE THE KING TO US
FITSNews – August 8, 2007 – So steroid user Barry Bonds hit his 756th career home run last night, ostensibly “breaking” the record set in 1976 by former Braves’ star Hank Aaron.
So? So what.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – records set by cheaters don’t count. As far as we’re concerned, Aaron’s record of 755 career home runs still stands, as does former New York Yankees’ outfielder Roger Maris‘ record of 61 home runs in a season (Maris’ mark has since been broken three times by three different steroid users).
If you pump your body full of illegal drugs to gain an unfair size and strength advantage over your competitors, you don’t deserve to have your name in the record book – you deserve to have the book thrown at you.
