Being there when Barry Bonds hit his 756th home run, passing the legendary Hank Aaron to take over perhaps Major League Baseball’s most hallowed record: first place on the all-time home run list was memorable to say the least. It was one of his trademark blasts, traveling 435 feet into the bleachers just to the right of center, setting off a wild scrum for the ball. Bonds’ record blast came off Nationals left-hander Mike Bacsik. The hometown Giant’s fans responded as expected while Bonds rounded the bases to a cacophony of cheers, met his son, Nikolai, as usual, at home plate, and then was swarmed by his teammates. The Nationals stood at their positions and applauded the new home run king. Bonds mother Pat, his wife, Liz, and daughters Aisha and Shikari were also there for that brilliant moment.
