This Day in History

On May 28, 2006, Barry Bonds hit his 715th home run, surpassing Babe Ruth on the all-time home run list of Major League Baseball, second only to Hank Aaron at that time. This event took place at AT&T Park in San Francisco during a game against the Colorado Rockies. Bonds’ achievement was marred by controversy due to allegations of steroid use, reflecting broader concerns about performance-enhancing drugs in professional sports. Despite the controversies, this milestone remains a significant moment in baseball history.
