history from the stands
barry bonds hit the record breaking homerun #756 monday night and the pandemonium that resulted in section 144 was recorded by jaime ramirez with his hand held video camera.
the homer is approx 10 seconds into the video moments after you see thousands of camera flashes burst in the background and then you see the ball end its 400 feet journey and land several feet in front of ramirez while a mob scurries after the million dollar prize. after that the video looks as if the camera was put it a washing machine.
the video doesn't show the bloodied fellow [matt murphey] a 21 year old student from the queens who went to the game with his mets jersey and was escorted with a police escort while clenching the ball in one hand and holding his bloody head with the other.
many people are criticizing bonds because they believe his success was drug aided [earlier this season pittsburgh fans threw syringes on the field while bonds was in the outfield] but i still think it was a huge a accomplishment for one of the original 'killer B's' that started his career as a pirate.
turn down your volume, the video gets loud..
