SAN DIEGO (AP) -Baseball commissioner Bud Selig headed home to Milwaukee on Sunday and is likely to miss Barry Bonds' next three games.
Selig was at Petco Park when Bonds hit his 755th homer Saturday night, tying Hank Aaron's record. Selig attended the start of Sunday's game, when Bonds didn't play, then headed home.
T Park by executive vice president Jimmie Lee Solomon for the first two games of the homestand and then Hall of Famer Frank Robinson.
Selig, close friends with Aaron, stood with his hands in his pockets as Bonds' family and friends cheered during Saturday's home run trot.
``I didn't see it,'' Bonds said of the commissioner's reaction. ``I didn't read anything yet. I just got here.''
Selig issued a statement after the game.
``No matter what anybody thinks of the controversy surrounding this event, Mr. Bonds' achievement is noteworthy and remarkable,'' Selig said, adding that ``all citizens in this country are innocent until proven guilty.''
The distance the commissioner's office has put between itself and Bonds was clear at the news conference. Six years ago, when Bonds tied Mark McGwire's season record with his 70th homer, the background was MLB logos. On Saturday night, the backdrop was a large Giants' symbol.
