MILWAUKEE (AP) -Commissioner Bud Selig didn't even have to leave his own backyard to catch Barry Bonds' chase for the home run record.
Bonds stood two home runs from tying Hank Aaron's career mark of 755 on Friday, the 31st anniversary of the Hammer's final career shot - and Selig planned to be there.
Bonds' San Francisco Giants opened a three-game weekend series against the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park, a short drive from the commissioner's downtown office.
Selig hadn't said publicly whether he planned to be in the stands as Bonds approached the 33-year-old record belonging to Aaron, a close friend of the commissioner who began and ended his career in Milwaukee.
Bonds hit two homers Thursday against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.
