"I don't know if I'll be involved," Mays said as he began his annual visit to camp, "but if the club feels they want me to go on the road and Barry needs some kind of companionship, I will. He might start feeling a little pressure when he starts getting close to that number." - Mays says he's up for a road trip with Bonds, Henry Schulman, Chronicle Staff Writer, Tuesday, February 27, 2007
Washington is all a buzz this morning over the news that D.C. just went from the PGA Tour’s outhouse to its penthouse, courtesy of one Tiger Woods. It’ll be hotter than hell out there at Congressional, but when the greatest draw in sports comes to town, you don’t mind paying
$5 $6 for a bottle of water.
Speaking of great draws, the possibility exists that baseball fans will get 2 for the price of 1 this summer. GIANTS WIN notes Henry Schulman’s report that Willie Mays said he would be willing to travel with the Giants when Bonds got close to 755.
In the ideal situation, Bonds passes Aaron in San Francisco this year, splashing number 756 into McCovey Cove on a gorgeous weekend afternoon. It would also be great if Barry could tie Hammerin Hank at Mays Field. The home fans deserve that too.
In my dream world, Barry does hit 756 at Mays Field. But since I’ve never attended a game where huge history was made, I’m hoping Bonds ties Aaron here at RFK. That’s not out of the question. The Giants are on tap for a three game set at RFK in the first weekend of September.
“Honey, do we really need to go the beach again this summer?”
