Bonds Hits Historic Homer Number 755

Barry Bonds became a part of MLB history on Saturday as he it career home run number 755 tying him with Hall of Fame outfielder Henry Aaron for the most home runs in a MLB career. Bonds hit the historic round tripper in San Diego against Padres starter Clay Hensley the 445th pitcher that has given up a homer to the San Francisco Giants slugger. There was a five minute stoppage of play as the San Diego crowd applauded Bonds. Bonds was greeted at home by his 17 year old son Nikolai who embraced his father. Very quickly the rest of the team came out to congratulate their teammate. Bonds then went to the part of the stands where his wife and daughter were sitting and kissed them both. In spite of the homer San Diego ended up wining the game 3-2. After the game he said that getting that last home run was the hardest thing he had ever accomplished. He said he had broke into a rash on his scalp due to the stress. Bonds went 28 at bats between homer number 754 and 755. He said he would take Sunday off.
