Barry Bonds hit his 755th home run to tie Hank Aaron's record. This places him in a probable "asterisk" record if/when he moves ahead of Aaron after hitting his next home run.
To counter this from happening, Bud Selig (commissioner of baseball) announced that all baseball players will receive two extra home runs for every year of their careers that they were steroid free.
This moves Aaron (and Babe Ruth) back ahead of Barry Bonds and means that the slugger may have to play another two years to set a record.
The announcement of the new home run statistics was greeted with total universal approval by everyone except Bonds, who broke a watercooler and two lockers when he heard the news.
Such are the days in the life of Balco Barry.
