Mike Bacsik, Barry Bonds & Hank Aaron Connection.

Well the Baseball history books now have Barry Bonds as the Home Run King with number 756 to break Hank Aaron's reign of 33 years as Home Run King with 755. Washington Nationals Pitcher Mike Bacsik was the (un)fortunate pitcher number 446 to get homered off of Bonds.

In a sort of destiny fulfilled odd-ball fact, Mike Bacsik's father (also named Mike) not only had pitched to a Bonds, Barry's father Bobby in 1979, but also to a home run king with 755 homers notched onto his bat (Hank Aaron). The senior Bacsik (Texas Rangers) had pitched to Aaron in Aug of 1976 but did not give up homer number 756.
