 NEW YORK (AP) -Baseball commissioner Bud Selig will attempt to attend the game when Barry Bonds breaks Hank Aaron's career home run record, saying the San Francisco Giants star was ``innocent until proven guilty.''
``Throughout this season, I have watched Barry Bonds' pursuit of the home run record. Now that he is on the verge of tying the record, the time has come to announce that I will make every attempt to attend the record-setting moment,'' Selig said in a statement.
``Out of respect for the tradition of this game, the magnitude of the record, and the fact that all citizens in this country are innocent until proven guilty, I will attend Barry Bonds' next games to observe his potential tying and breaking of the home run record, subject to my commitments to the Hall of Fame this weekend.''
Bonds, who has been dogged for years by suspicions that he used performance-enhancing drugs, began Tuesday with 753 homers, two shy of the record.
As recently as last weekend, when he watched Bonds and the San Francisco Giants play in Milwaukee, Selig had said he remained undecided. Selig skipped Monday's homestand opener in San Francisco.
The former owner of the Milwaukee Brewers, Selig has been friends for years with Aaron, who began his career with the Milwaukee Braves and ended it with the Brewers.
