In the years that followed, on weekend day games I would go with my dad or brother or friend and watch games at Three Rivers. The tickets my Dad had were in the front row, about on the turf 15 seats down the line from third. My memories of Barry Bonds are at eye level, his launching drives to right.
Fast forward 25 years now, and how does Pittsburgh remember Barry Bonds?
I vote for a Barry Bonds Appreciation Day next year, to break the streak.
At the very least, we pay our due respects to his prodigious baseball talent.
The photo below appeared in the Post-Gazette during one of his last visits.
I took this photo of his 663 home run in April 2004 in San Francisco.
Let's do a Bonds Appreciation Day in Pittsburgh next year, maybe when the Giants come to town as World Champions.
