Asterisk Gifts: Barry Bonds Ties Hank Aaron with 755 Home Runs*

Posted by Kyle Design on August 5, 2007

OK, the waiting is over: Barry Bonds hit baseball career home run Number 755 today, August 4, 2007, tying Hank Aaron’s record set on July 20, 1976. Bonds slammed a home run into the left field of San Diego’s Petco Park at 7:29 p.m. in the second inning of the game between the San Francisco Giants and the San Diego Padres. Despite Bond’s history-making achievement, the Giants still lost the game to the Padres 3-2 in 12 innings. It has taken 31 years and 15 days for this long-standing Home Run record to fall.

Whether there will ultimately be an asterisk next to Bond’s statistic in the record books still remains to be seen pending results of the ongoing allegations surrounding the Balco steroid case. Barry Bonds has been associated with Greg Anderson and Victor Conte, both of whom have been implicated in an ongoing steroid scandal in which they allegedly supplied performance enhancing drugs similar to Andro to several prominent sports figures. Whether or not Bonds is ultimately found to be in “the clear“, questions will always remain in the minds of some fans.
