Speaker Pelosi Cheers Bonds' Record-Breaking Homerun

Statement by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA):

On Barry Bonds Record-Breaking 756th Homerun

Tonight, Barry Bonds etched his name into baseball's history books and took his rightful place among the sport's immortals.

It was a great night for baseball and a great night for San Francisco - the crowd went wild.

It was particularly exciting to see Willie Mays embrace him on the field and see Hank Aaron congratulate him on the Jumbotron.

As a season ticket holder, I am particularly glad it happened on the Giant's Italian night.
