Barry Bonds has broken the all-time record with the benefit of a controversial
technological revolution in the game, derided by traditionalists:
The Maple Baseball Bat.
Using technology and woodworking techniques pioneered by Sam Bat,
Bonds helped develop and popularize the bats that are just as responsible for the advent of the Juiced Ball Era
as, well, the other thing.

Right now, on MLB.com,
you can watch Barry Bonds hit his 70th homerun of the season, Rickey Henderson tying Ty Cobb's career run record, Sammy Sosa hitting his 61st homerun of the season, Ichiro breaking Wade Bogg's record for singles in a season, and Tim Raines bat with his son Tim Raines Jr. on second. It's a good day to be a baseball fan.
