On this day, in 2004 Barry Bonds sets another home run record
August 10, 2004
Barry Bonds, one of the most accomplished hitters in MLB history, set yet another record on Aug. 10, 2004, when the outfielder for the San Francisco Giants homered in the top of the seventh inning against Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher John Grabow to become the first player with 13 consecutive seasons with 30 or more home runs.
Bonds started the record setting run in 1992 as a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates and recorded five seasons (2000-2004) with 40 or more home runs after signing with Giants as a free agent in 1993. In total, Bonds had 14 seasons with 30 or more home runs before ending his career in 2007.
