Barry Bonds, 755 - August 4, 2007

Barry Bonds hit his 755th home run, to tie Hank Aaron's major league record. He hit it to left field in the new ballpark in San Diego, which is a tough place to hit a home run.
After he passes Aaron, next up is Sadaharu Oh's professional baseball record, 868. It may not happen. I guess he'll try for 3,000 hits first.
I don't know if he uses or used steroids or not. I know that baseball players have done many things over the years to get an edge, from drinking a lot of coffee to taking amphetamines, to throwing spitballs, shine balls, and burr balls, to holding onto the belt of the runner at third while the umpire wasn't watching.
I do know that steroids won't let someone who can't hit a baseball well hit a baseball well.
