Mama and I were at Pacific Bell Park to see Barry Bonds hit his
599th career home run. It was an amazing scene. Play was stopped for a full five minutes to give the fans a chance to calm down after it was all over. I was so overwhelmed that I took a picture of the field after the home run with the scoreboard still displaying the number. It’s a shame that he didn’t hit his 600th while we were there to see it.


  1. Sweet shot! Sorry I gave you wrong info on his HR totals going into the game, but I did tell you the Giants would “beatdown” the Cubs!

  2. Nice shot. Too bad the Giants suck ass. It’s all about the Dodgers. I thought you knew…

  3. I grew up in Los Angeles so I have the same sentiment. However, you can’t deny that Bonds is chasing baseball history. I think he has a good chance to beat Hank Aaron’s 755 mark.
