2 BALCO's Client List
The Bay Area Laboratory Cooperative, or "BALCO", has long been a fixture in baseball news. Many big league players were reportedly clients of the San Francisco area company accused of supplying performance enhancing drugs.
The most prominent and routinely linked player is Barry Bonds— MLB's all-time leader in home runs with 762 for his career as well as 73 in a single season.
Although he does not become eligible until 2011, debate continues to ensue whether the controversial player should be enshrined. Various speculation and testimony have strongly suggested that Bonds used steroids to fuel his phenomenal accomplishments, but he has skirted the topic for many years.
The BALCO client list would certainly be a highly intriguing document— both as it relates to the game's most prolific power hitter and possibly a whole host of other prominent players.
