(NEW YORK) -- Whether or not Barry Bonds makes the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame remains to be seen, but if you ask him, he'll tell you he belongs there.
"Oh, without a doubt. There's no doubt in my mind," Bonds told MLB.com.
The Hall of Fame ballot will be released in November, and many are wondering if the all-time home run king will make the first cut. Bonds will join players like Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, and Roger Clemens who were connected to performance enhancing drugs.
"I know I'm going to be gone one day," Bonds added. "If you want to keep me out, that's your business. My things are here in San Francisco. These are the people who love me. This is where I feel I belong. This is where I want to belong. If [the voters] want to put me in there, so be it, fine. If they don't, so be it, fine."
In 22 years with the Pittsburgh Pirates and San Francisco Giants, Bonds hit 762 home runs, had 1,996 RBIs, 2,953 hits, and stole 514 bases.
