NEW YORK (AP) - Hank Aaron says he’s saddened by news involving Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds, both facing trial next spring and accused of lying about using steroids.

“I’m just saddened by it,” says Aaron, who held baseball’s career home run record until Bonds broke it. “I’m not a judge and I’m not a juror and I don’t know who’s guilty and who’s what. I’m just saddened for baseball and saddened for Clemens and Bonds, both.”

Aaron, at the U.S. Open to receive the U.S. Tennis Association’s “Breaking the Barriers” honor, says he hasn’t given any thought to whether Bonds‘ or Clemens‘ records should stand, be wiped away or accompanied by an asterisk.
