Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
As Major League Baseball's most controversial slugger closes in on Hank Aaron's all-time record of 755 home runs, ESPN's Emmy Award-winning Classic Sports Century offers a comprehensive profile of star athlete Barry Bonds. For years accusations of steroid use have cast a dark shadow over Bonds' achievements while simultaneously straining his relationship with teammates. A thirteen-time all star who became the only player in the history of the game to amass 500 home runs and 500 steals, Bonds has been unabashedly vocal about his desire to meet and surpass Aaron's impressive record. With the documentary, viewers are invited down into the dugout to get up close and personal with the athlete who has helped to bring home countless runners for both the Pittsburgh Pirates and the San Francisco Giants.
