SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -A male fan hopped the fence and ran out to greet Barry Bonds in left field Friday night before the San Francisco slugger calmly walked the man off and into the custody of security personnel.
The fan came out over the short fence along the left-field line and scurried to Bonds in the seventh inning against the Arizona Diamondbacks, with Orlando Hudson batting. Bonds didn't flinch, putting his arm around the man and walking him off the field.
The Giants have said they will beef up security during Bonds' chase of Hank Aaron's home run record of 755. The club did a trial run with metal detectors at some gates Friday leading up to All-Star game festivities next month.
