Barry Bonds Plaque Goes Missing

The plaque honoring Barry Bonds' 756th home run has gone missing from AT&T Park in San Fransisco, California.

"We're in the process of replacing it," Staci Slaughter, the Giants Spokeswoman said. "We're not sure what happened. We're reviewing video, but haven't found anything yet."

There is still white glue on the brick wall where the plaque used to be in the reigning World Series Champion Giants Ball Park.

The plaque in all represents the August day that Bonds broke Hank Aaron's home run record of 755. That was also, Bonds' last season so he ended his career with 762 homers,  sadly that title of Home Run King might have an asterisk next to it in the record books due to his supposed steroid use. That is also the reason I think it was stolen, most likley the man or woman who stole it thought that he shouldn't have a plaque saying he is the Home Run King if he took steroids.

I have to say I agree that he shouldn't be the Home Run King if he took steroids and players like Aaron and Ruth didn't. I still hope the plaque is returned to the rightful owner though.
