Those not thrilled with seeing Barry Bonds break Hank Aaron’s all-time home run record may be even less excited with this news.
Assuming Barry Bonds is able to meet the physical demands of the season ahead, this will likely be the year the all-time career home run mark falls. Bonds, who has developed a keen sense of history (and what it’s worth), may be on the verge of a marketing deal with bat-maker SSK. If it goes through, Hank Aaron’s record may fall to a guy who’s not real popular and uses a bat made in Japan.
Bonds has been using Sam Bats in recent years, but the small Canadian company is way behind on orders, including those meant for Bonds.
