1998 HEADLINE: Barry Bonds Joins ‘The 40/40 Club’

On this day in 1996, Barry Bonds joined an elite class of baseball player by becoming a member of the ’40/40 Club’.

On the road in Colorado, and nearing the end of the 1998 baseball season, Barry Bonds swiped the 40th base of his season.  That steal, his last one of the 1998 season, became monumental occasion launching Bonds into another world of player.

As the third member of the group, Bonds’ all-around athletic game put him on par with the other members of the ’40/40 Club’ – Jose Canseco and Alex Rodriguez.

Happy Anniversary Mr. Bonds!!!
