From yahoo.com:

"Barry Bonds' batting helmets, hand marked with #755 and #756 on the bills, arrived in New York on Thursday en route to Cooperstown.

The helmet Bonds wore when he hit the home run that tied Hank Aaron's 33-year-old record and the one he was wearing Tuesday when he broke the mark were briefly displayed at Albany's airport on the way to the Hall of Fame. Fresh off a flight from San Francisco, Hall vice president Jeff Idelson pulled the helmets out of a wrinkled shopping bag to show reporters and a few travelers who poked their heads through the scrum of news photographers...."


More appropriately, they should send his batting helmets from his 1st homerun, his 100th, his 200th, 300th, 400th, 500th, 600th, and 700th, too, and their ever-increasing sizes.

Probably around a size 8 1/2.

I hope his syringes are placed in the Hall, too.

I really shouldn't have laughed at this line but I couldn't help it. Nicely done.
