Today in Baseball History:

  • 2004 — Connecting off Jake Peavy’s 3rd-inning slider at SBC Park, Barry Bonds hits his 700th career home run. The historic homer touches off a fireworks display and the unfurling of a gigantic light-tower banner featuring Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron, the two other players to reach the milestone.
  • 2011 — Mariano Rivera ties Trevor Hoffman’s Major League record with his 602nd career save in the Yankees’ 7 - 6 win over the Blue Jays. Rivera is backed by home runs from Alex Rodriguez, playing in his first game since aggravating a wrist injury on September 9th, and Curtis Granderson, who becomes the first Yankees CF since Mickey Mantle in 1961 to hit 40 home runs in a season.
