The New King Stands Alone

Barry Bonds Home Run #756
August 7th, 2007 is a day I, along with many baseball fans, will never forget. The day Barry Lamar Bonds passed the great Hank Aaron and moved into first place on the all-time home run list. Number 756 was hit in typical Bonds fashion, a majestic shot over the right center field wall that stands 419 feet away from home plate, 5 rows deep into the bleachers. I have had the privilege to watch Bonds closely ever since he dawned a Giants' uniform for the first time in 1993 and he has provided me with numerous memories that I will never forget and on Tuesday night he added one more to the bank. Congratulations Barry Bonds, I have never seen an athlete dominate their sport the way you have done baseball over the last 15 years, and you deserve this. I want to pay my respects to Hank Aaron for the message he sent Bonds after the home run was hit. In my last post I bashed Aaron about how distant he made himself from this record chase, but he showed true class by telling Barry that he is now "The King", in a video memoir right after the home run. Now that Aaron has passed the torch, I think everyone needs to put the controversy aside for a moment and enjoy this. Love him or hate him, if you can’t take a moment to enjoy Bonds' feat, you need to question yourself as to whether or not your really a baseball fan or a fan of politics.

    757 was more impressive than 756. This guy is seems like he's heating up as the season winds down.
