  Bonds, Barry Lamar - HighBeam Encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Riverside, Calif. Bonds grew up surrounded by baseball; his father, Bobby Bonds, was a San Francisco Giants outfielder (1968-74), and the great Willie Mays was his godfather.
Bonds also shattered two of Babe Ruth 's long-standing records—the 81-year-old slugging record (Ruth's was.847; Bonds'.863) and the 78-year-old record for walks in a season (Ruth had 170, Bonds 177) and won his fourth MVP, a record until he was again the MVP in 2002 and 2003.
Bonds ranks second on the career home-runs list, having reached the 700-homer mark in 2004 after 13 consecutive 30-home-run seasons (and breaking Jimmie Foxx 's record of 12 seasons) and passing Ruth's 714 mark in 2006.
