Re: Bonds broke the record
I went to a game at GABP in 2003. Bonds was facing Josh Hall, and I experienced something I'll never forget. Bonds strode up to the plate, and everyone in the stadium knew he was going deep. I (and 40,000 others) just waited for Barry to hit one out, so we could just get on with the game. It was eerie. Maybe that more than anything else tells me how good Barry was. That was definitely my weirdest experience at a ballgame.
