Selig To Reinstate HR Crown to Aaron?

Is baseball's steroid scandal about to make Hank Aaron the once and future home run king?

Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig reportedly is considering restoring the crown to Aaron, who lost it in 2007 to Barry Bonds.

Bonds is set to go on trial on March 2 on obstruction of justice charges related a federal investigation into the BALCO steroid scandal.

Bonds' trainer was indicted on charges he supplied steroids and other performance-enhancement drugs to baseball players through BALCO, leading to speculation that Bonds also had used steroids, allegations he denies. - Fox News

As one commenter on the issue stated, "Bud Selig practically encouraged the entire steroids era. Seeing him running around demanding apologies and acting pissed off about steroids users is enraging." Another one tied in some humor, "This is like Mark Foley campaigning against child pornography. Oh, wait... it's exactly like it."
