Last night Barry Bonds hit career home run 755* tying Henry Aaron’s all time HR record. I think all that needs to be said with Barry Bonds march toward breaking the HR record is that a respected man like Henry Aaron wants nothing to do with the record breaking attempt. There is a reason why Aaron is staying away and unfortunately this is nothing more than another black eye for baseball. The HR record is now nothing more than a joke in the age of the steroid performance enhancing scandals.
Bonds was booed as he headed to left field at the end of the inning. The 43-year-old star has been shadowed by suspicions of steroid use for several years, which some fans feel has tainted his chase for home run record. (Breitbart)
Baseball’s only hope is that Bonds breaks the record at home rather than on the road. If done away from San Francisco, Bonds will be booed unmercifully.
It’s a good think that Yankee slugger, Alex Rodriguez, is at 500 at the age of 32. Bonds record will be short lived and obliterated by Rodriguez. In 6 years this record will change. Maybe even less if the Red Sox sign Alex Rodriguez in the off season.
