This is a message to all you kids. If you hate Barry Bonds – and most of us outside of San Francisco do – there is something you can do to combat his plundering of Hank Aaron’s home run record: Learn to hit home runs. It seems inevitable that Barry will hit his 756th. The only way to clean his asterisked record from the books is if someone hits 757 or however many it takes. If you can hit 40 home runs over a course of a 20-year Major League career, you can beat Barry’s record. Find a good coach who will teach you the mechanics of a good swing and give you the proper exercises to build your strength. Remember that Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, and Sadaharu Oh didn’t need steroids or other artificial means to become great sluggers. Neither do you.
