ESPN has learned that Bonds and any other current player who may be part of this investigation will be allowed to play while the investigation is ongoing.Bonds enters the season with 708 homers, trailing only Babe Ruth (714) and Hank Aaron (755) on the career list. "I assume physical constraints notwithstanding, Bonds will play the whole year," DuPuy said. Selig would not discuss whether baseball would commemorate Bonds' pursuit of the home run record. "We'll work those out in the coming weeks," he said.
