WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush telephoned baseball slugger Barry Bonds on Wednesday and congratulated him for breaking the career home run record in major league baseball.
``He is a really good hitter,'' the president said to reporters on his way out of an economic briefing. ``I said 'congratulations.'''
Bonds on Tuesday night broke Hank Aaron's record of 755 home runs. Bonds, an outfielder with the San Francisco Giants, hit No. 756 at his home park.
Bush said it was ``my honor'' to call Bonds.
