Legendary San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds told reporters earlier that he “checked his own pulse and other vitals” after hearing a blurb on the television news announcing that “baseball’s Home Run King has passed away.”
Bonds, whose 762 home runs are recognized by Major League Baseball as the most in MLB history, says he breathed a sigh of relief when he realized they were “only talking about Hank Aaron”.
“I thought they knew something I didn’t,” Bonds told The Brown Valley Observer.
Hank Aaron, who passed away on January 22, 2021, previously held the mark with 755. Bonds eclipsed Aaron with his 756th home run on August 7, 2007. Many fans erroneously still consider Aaron to hold the record.
Bonds reports that his vitals all seemed OK and called himself the model of perfect health for his age group.
“I’m still in good enough shape to make the cut. I’m a little older and a little creakier, but I’m sure I could just rub a little linseed oil on my joints and I’d be as good as new.”
