HOF Committee admits: “We don’t have a plaque big enough for Bonds head.”

Last week the National Baseball Hall of Fame elected three more players to be inducted into its esteemed halls.

Yet, for the fifth time, one of the greatest players in the game’s history was passed over by the Hall of Fame Selection Committee.

First baseman Jeff Bagwell, left fielder Tim Raines, and catcher Ivan Rodriguez earned themselves a plaque in Cooperstown, with their incredible careers.

Barry Bonds was a 14 time All Star, an eight time Golden Glove winner, and a hitter that knocked out 762 career home runs.

And while the speculation has always been, that baseball writers have held the rumors of steroid use against Bonds, that isn’t the full story.

Baseball Hall of Fame spokesman Jack Wheeler explained the difficulty in electing the voting for the left fielder.

“We realize that Bonds used steroids. Let’s be honest, there are plenty of people involved with steroids that are already in Cooperstown.  I mean, Bud Selig used to literally walk through locker rooms with a blindfold on…just so he couldn’t see the rampant drug use, and he got in.” Wheeler said.

“The problem that we are facing with Barry Bonds, is that his head is way too big to fit on a plaque.” he explained. “We have tried to cast a plaque for Bonds and his head takes up the entire square. There is literally no room for anything else. And when we try to hang it, the weight of the plaque keeps ripping the nail right out of the wall. Until we can come up with a new design, there just isn’t much we can do right now.”
