Actually.. wait.. I just looked up Bobby Bonds date of death and it says Aug 23. Is my memory wrong on this? I swear I thought I was at that Braves game. But I guess his first game back was against Arizona..
Bonds had a historic day against AZ on his birthday. Threw Craig Counsell out at the plate in the top of the 9th to preserve the tie, then lead off the bottom of the 9th with a first pitch, oppo walkoff HR off Mike Myers. I remember that well. Myers came in, threw a pitch, and as soon as Bonds hit it, he yelled "F*CK!" and walked back to the dugout without even turning around to watch. It was hilarious.
I remember this game vivdly it was a day game. As soon as he threw out Counsell my grandpa looks at me and says that they better walk Bonds or this game is over
