 Barry Bonds' record-breaking homer was met with mostly boos when it was announced at three other ballparks Tuesday night, a familiar reaction to the achievements of the San Francisco Giants' slugger.
Only three games were still going on when Bonds broke Hank Aaron's storied record with a drive in the fifth inning against Washington pitcher Mike Bacsik in San Francisco. Bonds connected on a 3-2 pitch for career homer No. 756.
News of Bonds' drive quickly reached Southern California, where a replay of the homer was shown on the videoboards in right and left field in Anaheim after the final out of the fifth inning. The sellout crowd of 44,177 booed loudly.
Fans at Coors Field in Denver mostly booed as they watched Bonds round the bases between innings and quickly turned their attention to the top of the ninth of the Rockies' 6-3 win over Milwaukee.
When the home run was shown on the big screen over center field in Arizona, a smattering of applause was drowned out by resounding boos from most of the crowd of 25,340 at Chase Field.
Players were more impressed with Bonds' accomplishment.
``I think it's pretty cool,'' Cardinals outfielder Jim Edmonds said after St. Louis' 4-0 loss to San Diego. ``I think it's good for baseball and I just think it's a pretty neat thing.''
