But Aaron tells the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he doesn't want his old record back.
It seems like Aaron has remained very classy through this whole process and he should be commended him for his humility. On the other hand, if Bonds is found guilty of using banned substances, why shouldn't commissioner Bud Selig make Aaron's 715 the benchmark again? It sure would be nice to live in a world where sports' most important record was free of taint.""If you did that, you'd have to go back and change all kinds of records, and the [home run] record was very important to me," Aaron said. "It's probably the most hallowed record out there, as far as I'm concerned, but it's now in the hands of somebody else. It belongs to Barry. No matter how we look at it, it's his record, and I held it for a long time. But my take on all of this has always been the same. I'm not going to say that Barry's got it because of this or because of that, because I don't know."
