Barry Bonds Homerun Record
Is Barry Bonds deserving of the all time homerun record? He is closing in on the all time homerun title in MLB. He only needs to pass Hank Aaron, who had 755 homeruns. If Bonds stays healthy, then he should eclipse that mark this year. He’s going to be the most watched player in baseball this year. You are going to see your local baseball game break away from your game, just to show Barry at bat. This will be especially true as he gets closer to the record.
As a Braves fan, I like having a Braves Player owning the record. I can’t deny Barry Bond’s ability to play the game. I declared him the best player to ever play the game, before he hit 73 homeruns in one season. After he done that, it only made me more sure of my decision. I do think Barry Bonds is the greatest player ever to play baseball. I didn’t get the chance to see Willie Mayes play, but just from the stats and stories. I think Barry Bonds is a slight better overall player than Willie Mayes. Willie has Bonds in the outfield, with his defensive ability. However, Barry Bonds just shatters him on the offensive side of things.
I do think Bond’s has had a little bit of help, with performance enhancing drugs. Willie Mayes and Hank Aaron didn’t have the luxuries of some of the modern medicines, or Coors Field in Colorado. You do have to keep in mind the pitchers though. The pitchers were juiced too, and they have been throwing the ball harder than ever as well. So it does balance itself out a bit. No matter how strong you are, you still have to hit the ball. Barry Bonds can hit the ball. I see little things that will hurt his legacy as a baseball player, but you can’t deny that he is one of the best baseball players ever, if not the best.
755 will be a record that is broken. So many active hitters in the game today, have a good shot at breaking that mark. So it’s just a matter of time, until someone passes that mark. It will be done by a player that is active now. So grab a seat and watch some baseball, you are going to witness history soon!Click here for reuse options!
