Barry Bonds is still not enshrined among the greatest baseball players of all-time in Cooperstown, but his name will still be in the Hall of Fame. No, not the National Baseball Hall of Fame, but the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame.
Bonds was inducted by a landslide of votes by local media members, receiving more votes than any other of the 71 athletes on the ballot. Giants broadcasters Mike Krukow and Duane Kuiper will be presenting Bonds on stage on Monday night at the Westin St. Francis Hotel.
"He should go into every hall of fame that exists," Krukow told GoErie.com.
Others joining Bonds in the BASHOF include former Giants manager Dusty Baker, Olympic skier Jonny Moseley, golfer Roger Maltbie and late Warriors owner Franklin Mieuli. For his presence on and off the field, Bonds will certainly be the headliner of the night.
