Interesting idea by this guy...I think such an achievement deserves to go to the HOF, so I voted for that option. I believe Bonds said he didn't care at all what happens to it, though.

I agree.
It's not like it's the "Bartman" ball, which was blown up at some bar in Wrigleyville.

I just voted to "Bestow it" about 10 or 12 times in 20 seconds.


I'd imagine that someone could write a script that just kept voting repetitively.

I voted to bestow it.

Since there is no running tally, i am betting he bestows it no matter what. Besides, launching it into space is probably too expensive.

He said on The Today Show that he voted first and he voted to brand it. So it will be interesting what happens with it.

Oh shut up... No one is going to give a crap in 7 years when Arod breaks the record anyway.

Yes but what exactly is he advertising? His name for his fashion company?
