  • 2001 — The San Francisco Giants’ Barry Bonds extends his major league record for home runs in season to 73 as he drives a 3-2 1st-inning knuckleball off Dodgers pitcher Dennis Springer over the right field fence. The blast also secures two more major league records for Bonds as he surpasses Babe Ruth - who slugged .847 in 1920 - with a .863 season slugging percentage and bests Mark McGwire, who in 1998 hit one HR every 7.27 at-bat by homering in every 6.52 at-bats.
