We remember Bobby Bonds, the “30-30″ player

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Bobby Bonds was born on this in 1946.   He died in 2003 at age 57.

In the early 1970s, Bobby Bonds was one of the greatest players in baseball.    He was a “30 home run 30 stolen bases” player in five different seasons.   

In 1973, he came within one home run of being the first “40-40″ player in history:  39 HR and 43 stolen bases.    Jose Canseco did it in 1988.

Bonds had some great years with the Giants.   He was traded to the Yankees and played with several AL teams.   I had an opportunity to watch him and appreciate his incredible talents.   By the late 1970s, he was more of a DH.   In his early days, he was a complete player with the Giants.

Overall, he finished with a .268 career batting average, 332 HR, 1,024 RBI and 1,886 hits.    

He is probably better known today for being Barry Bonds’ dad.
