One of the most polarizing players in MLB history is the all-time leader in home runs: Barry Bonds.
If you look at just the production on the field, Bonds is the greatest baseball player of all time.
He won seven MVP awards, was a 14-time All-Star, won eight Gold Gloves, and is the home run king.
But, it is how he got those numbers that leaves his career up for debate.
Bonds played the majority of his career right in the heart of the steroid era.
He was one of the prominent players connected to performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs).
For that reason, he may never be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
There is no question Bonds’ career is something a lot of people are interested in.
That is why HBO will be creating a documentary about it.
According to Front Office Sports, HBO has begun production on his documentary.

It remains to be seen if Bonds will participate in the documentary but the option is open to him.
The steroid era is a major part of baseball history and Bonds played a big role in that.
Bonds was easily the most feared hitter in baseball throughout the early 2000s.
Opposing pitchers wanted no business pitching to him.
There is a reason he is the all-time leader in walks and intentional walks.
Bonds was an elite player far before he allegedly started taking steroids.
He won his first MVP award as a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1990.
But, he will only be remembered as the legendary player that cheated.
This documentary will certainly be thrilling and should be a must-watch for all baseball fans.NEXT: 2 MLB Teams Ended A Power Drought On Wednesday
