Home MLB Bonds on the BBC website

Bonds on the BBC website

by Matt Smith

There’s an article on the BBC website today about Barry Bonds’ home run record chase, although this one’s not categorised under the Sports heading. No, the story is logged in the Business section as it is about the potential value of the 756th baseball that Bonds puts into the seats. The most interesting point they make is the difference in value between Mark McGwire’s single season record-breaking ball ($3m) and Bonds’ ($450,000). Perhaps that’s a reflection on the popularity of the two players at the time or maybe Bonds’ shot meant less because there was a comparatively short amount of time between the two? One thing I do know: there’s going to be a vicious scrap for the ball when it lands. Let’s hope no one gets hurt. The story can be found here.
