Just two blasts shy of Hank Aaron's all-time record, slugger Barry Bonds has a chance to become the new home run king in his own backyard. But Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig has vowed not to attend Bonds' seven-game homestand in San Francisco that began last night—nor take part in his imminent coronation ceremony.
Selig's resolution is the latest in an ongoing war with Bonds, who has faced allegations of steroid use for years. Bonds, who slugged homers No. 752 and 753 in Chicago last week, came up dry yesterday, going 1-3 with a single in a 2-4 loss against the Atlanta Braves.
