COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) -- The ball that Barry Bonds launched for
his record-breaking 756th home run won't land in the Hall of Fame.
The Hall announced Tuesday that talks with fashion designer Marc
Ecko, who bought the souvenir for more than $750,000 last
September, had "unfortunately reached an impasse." "The owner's previous commitment to unconditionally donate the baseball has changed to a loan. As a result, the Hall of Fame will not be able to accept the baseball," the Hall said.
