SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Commissioner Bud Selig was a no-show for Barry Bonds' welcome home party.
Bonds returned to the San Francisco Giants' waterfront ballpark on Monday, two home runs shy of tying Hank Aaron's mark of 755. Fans and ball hawkers alike were in a rowdy mood, eager to see Bonds match the hallowed record in the city where he's adored.
Selig didn't make the trip to San Francisco, and it wasn't clear if he'll be in attendance when Bonds matches Aaron, a close friend of the commissioner. San Francisco began a seven-game homestand Monday night, and the Giants hadn't heard whether to expect Selig or not.
``He has not announced any plans,'' baseball spokesman Pat Courtney said.
Selig was on hand when Bonds and the Giants played the Milwaukee Brewers over the weekend. But Selig said it was ``common sense'' for him to attend, with Miller Park only a few miles from his downtown office.
But he refused to say if he would follow the Giants as Bonds nears Aaron's 33-year-old record.
``I'll do that at the appropriate time,'' Selig said Friday night. ``It's just like people wanting to know if I'm coming here - I'm here.''
