Barry Bonds returns to Hall of Fame ballot
Following two more MVP seasons in 2003 and 2004, Bonds missed much of the 2005 season with knee injuries. But he returned in 2006 and 2007, mounting a challenge to Henry Aaron’s all-time home run mark. On Aug. 7, 2007, Bonds hit career home run No. 756 off Washington’s Mike Bacsik, etching his name into history. The ball Bonds hit for his record-breaking home run was eventually donated to the Hall of Fame.
