It's all about the record. I'd do it too if I were him.

I think from the media stand point the Aaron record will far surpass Babe's American League record.


Really? If you ask the casual baseball fan who is the HR king, the answer will almost always be Babe Ruth. The casual fan doesn't even know about Hank Aaron being the leader.


eh i dont know if i believe that. but regardless of what people know now, espn will pump americas ears with hank arron/barry bonds till our ears can take no mo!


Try it today...go up to someone who doesn't know a lot about baseball but also isn't completely clueless (ie, the casual fan). Just say, who has hit the most HRs in the history of baseball?

I agree that ESPN will probably pump it, but I can hardly forget how ridiculously they pumped it when he passed Ruth. :-P


I would imagine that you would have to find somebody who does not follow baseball at all. I don't know if "casual fan" is the right term for that person.

Once Barry passes Aaron ... the whole world will know the awnser to that question Slomo. I guarantee it.

easier said than done. the mental strain of chasing that record, under these circumstances would be mind boggling. we've seen him crack before and what he'll encounter when getting nearer to this record will be more scrutiny than he's ever seen. the mental strain and injury risk is gonna make this a tough 25 more for barriod.

I agree, ESPN will give them no choice. But, will baseball fans accept him as the record holder? :-?
