OK, it’s not the Hall of Fame. But it’s a Hall of Fame nonetheless. From the San Francisco Chronicle:
Few understand the history of Bay Area sports like Barry Bonds, who has lived it and made it.
He’s now getting honored for it.
“It’s great. Being a Bay Area guy, it’s awesome. It’s wonderful,” said Bonds of his selection to the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame.
The story says he got more votes than any other candidate. The story also features Alex Rodriguez telling Bonds that he wants to take Bonds’ home run record. Which, hey, everyone’s gotta have a goal, I guess. Let’s just not wait up for him to do it, OK?
