Next up on the home run chart for Barry Bonds: Sadaharu Oh.
Oh hit 868 homers in Japan, and congratulated Bonds after the San Francisco star broke Hank Aaron's record by hitting No. 756 Tuesday night.
``Over the past 10 years, I'm sure he has struggled a lot physically, and there no doubt have been many tough days for him,'' Oh said.
``Hitting home runs requires tenacity and passion for baseball while overcoming hardship, and I want to congratulate him from the bottom of my heart,'' he said.
Oh now manages the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks. After Bonds homered against Washington, the Giants star said he still had plenty of baseball left in him.
``This isn't the final goal,'' Oh said. ``A lot of baseball fans will be eager to see how many more homers he can hit, and his next milestone will be 800. I wish him all the best in reaching that next goal and will be following his pursuit of that with high expectations.''
