Barry Bonds hit his 700th home run 11 years ago today
Over his playing career, Barry Bonds earned membership into several ultra-exclusive clubs. One of them: The 700 home run club -- a group previously comprised of just Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth.
Bonds joined the company on this day in 2004 against the San Diego Padres, socking one to left center field off Jake Peavy -- the league's ERA leader that season. Bonds would go on to mash 62 more home runs over the next three seasons, locking up baseball's home run crown before his final game in 2007.
