They probably won’t be getting Barry Bonds’ 756th home run ball, but the National Baseball Hall of Fame still made off with plenty of items…no charge.
The chase is over for Jeff Idelson too. The Baseball Hall of Fame’s vice president had been waiting for the home run that would help him continue to write baseball history.
Idelson needed to follow Bonds until the record was broken so they could better secure items from the game. Bonds handed over his batting helmets from record-tying 755th and the one that followed Tuesday night that established a new all-time home run leader.
One thing they didn’t get? Bonds’ bat. In keeping with Bonds’ policy, 756 is the only home run that bat will hit. The man who makes Barry’s bats understands the whole game-used phenomenon.
