In case you haven't heard, the guy who spent over three-quarters of a million dollars to buy Barry Bonds 756th home run ball is having a poll to decide what to do with it. You can vote to have him donate it to the Baseball Hall of Fame, brand it with an asterisk and then give it to the Hall, or fire it into space.

I voted to give the ball to the Hall untouched. As much as I think Bonds cheated to beat Hank Aaron's record, I don't think defacing the ball before sending it to Cooperstown is the right thing to do. The history of the Steroid Era will stand on its own, and Bonds 756th is a part of that.
