If there is a single baseball game that is worth watching this season, it is tonight’s matchup between the Florida Marlins and the San Francisco Giants. The Marlins will be led by Oakland-native Dontrelle Willis. The Giants, of course, feature Barry Bonds. Bonds hit his 754th home run last night. Willis idolized Bonds and his own major league aspirations were inspired by the Giant outfielder. According to Dontrelle, Barry has supported his success in the league by providing insights and advice on his approach to the game. If Bonds can take the savvy southpaw deep, he will tie the record for the most home runs in a major league career.
That bit of back story makes this the most appealing matchup of the season.
