Home Run #713 for Barry Bonds - Hum Baby!
On Sunday, May 7th, Barry inched closer to passing Babe Ruth, and it appears that the nation is watching. I'm out of town and only know that the blast, a 450 footer, was against the Phillies. ESPN was cutting to Barry on his every at bat. I'm homesick for SBC/AT&T Park. I should be there.
Say what you want about Barry and Balco, it's still exciting to watch him close in on the number two all-time career home run spot. Barry is making this baseball season a "walk to remember." Hopefully, Barry can hit two home runs in this home stand to reach number two on the all-time list. That is if they continue to pitch to him.
Keep Swinging Barry!
