A commemorative plaque honoring Barry Bonds’ record-breaking 756th home run hanging at the San Francisco Giants’ AT&T Park has vanished.

CBS and other Bay Area media affiliates are reporting the plaque vanished sometime in the last few days. Team and stadium officials are reviewing stadium security video to try and find when it was taken and by whom, a San Francisco police official said.

The team has opted to handle the issue internally and has not asked for police assistance, officials said.

Bonds remains a controversial figure in baseball. Considered one of the greatest hitters of all time, he broke Hank Aaron’s all-time home-run record under a cloud of suspicion that he used performance-enhancing drugs.

He is currently appealing his federal conviction for obstruction of justice related to denying he ever used banned substances.

A Giants official was not immediately available for comment.
