should tell you something about how purists of baseball consider this to be the "real, untainted" new single season home run record. To use old "Happy Days" parlance, Mark MacQuire, Sammy Sosa, and especially Barry "Pumpkin Head" Bonds can SIT ON IT.
Glad I don’t have to make that decision to do the honorable thing and give it to Aaron Judge for a few souvenirs or sell it for millions. I heard on the radio that the young man who caught Mark McGuire’s ball offered to give it to McGuire, asking only for a few signed souvenirs and a chance to meet McGuire in person. McGuire told him to take a hike (or much worse) and the guy ended up selling the ball for $3 mil. I guess McGuire did him a favor by being such a jerk.
