Barry Bonds hit #754 in the 1st inning of the Giants game against the Florida Marlins. His victim was the young rookie, Rick Vanden Hurk, who now becomes the 444th pitcher to allow a homerun to Bonds.
In case you care, the game is on ESPN and will be on ESPN again on Saturday night at 9 PM ET. Also, Bud Selig is not at the game as he in Cooperstown for this weekend’s Hall of Fame ceremonies. Bob DuPuy, president and COO, is there representing Major League Baseball.
