Barry Bonds stands alone

Bonds gets #756 and passes Aaron for all time home run slugger.

Notice when he crosses home plate. Kind of an awkward moment with his son, who tries to embrace Barry, but Barry is honoring his father by looking up to the sky.

Is it a "tainted" record? Yea, probably. But that's life. Someone will brake his record, anyway, in the next generation of athletes. Alex Rodriguez, so they say, will probably be the next home run king.

It's probably tainted, but it's still cool to be a part of history.

I agree. But you still have to have an incredible amount of talent and work extremely hard to hit the ball as well as Barry does. There's no doubt that the juice helps, but I'm still in awe of this guy's swing.

It's also funny to see pics of Barry when he was young and first playing in the League. He is very thin! Now his whole body - structure, head, feet, hands - are all about twice the size!
