MILWAUKEE (AP) -Baseball commissioner Bud Selig made a low-key trip to Miller Park as Barry Bonds and the San Francisco Giants played the Milwaukee Brewers.
Selig, who lives and has his office in Milwaukee, watched several innings of the Brewers' 5-4 victory on Monday night, leaving before the game was over.
``I had no idea,'' Giants second baseman Ray Durham said Tuesday. ``I don't know anything. I worry about myself, that's all I can do.''
Selig won't say whether he will attend Bonds' games when the slugger is in position to tie and surpass the home run record of 755 set by Hank Aaron, a friend of the commissioner. Bonds began Tuesday with 748 homers - but just three since May 8.
Bonds, who told animated stories to Durham, Randy Winn and Dave Roberts in the clubhouse Tuesday, had nothing to say when he came out to stretch.
``I'm not talking all series,'' Bonds told The Associated Press. When asked about whether he knew Selig was in attendance, he again repeated, ``I'm not talking all series.''
Bonds is expected to get a day off on Wednesday as the Giants wrap up the three-game set. The Giants have a day off Thursday before opening a weekend series at home against the New York Yankees.
Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that he had heard Selig was in attendance, but the commissioner did not stop by either clubhouses before or during the game.
``I didn't see him, I didn't talk to him,'' Bochy said.
The team says that Selig regularly attends as a fan, but they don't keep tabs when he's in Miller Park, which Selig helped push to be built.
Selig purchased the bankrupt Seattle Pilots franchise and moved them to Milwaukee in 1970. He was team president until 1998, when he was elected baseball commissioner full-time. His family sold the controlling interest of the team to Los Angeles investment banker Mark Attanasio in January 2005 for $223 million.
San Francisco returns to Milwaukee on July 20 for a three-game series.
