740 and Counting
When I was a kid, enamoured by baseball statistics, I thought Hank Aaron's 755 career homer record was untouchable. This was a time when 27 dingers could lead the Jays and nobody seemed to be touching 50 in a single season. Reggie Jackson was the man, and he retired with 563 home runs. How would anyone approach 755?
Barry Bonds hit his 740th homer today. He has fifteen to go, and at this pace, it won't be long until he passes Aaron. Barring a catastrophic injury, it's inevitible. That untouchable 755 will be surpassed this summer.
