Bonds addresses safety

July 1, 2007


— Barry Bonds said Saturday it's up to Major League Baseball and the Giants to decide how much security is needed around him as he closes in on Hank Aaron's home run record.

In the seventh inning of San Francisco's home game with Arizona on Friday night, a male fan wearing no shoes hopped the fence along the left-field line and ran out to greet the slugger.

"The guy came out, jumped on the field, had his hands up and said, 'I just want to shake your hand,' screaming," Bonds said. "I said, 'Fine, come shake my hand.' ... I said, 'Let's just walk back together, though, so these guys don't throw you on the ground, and you'll show them that you mean no harm.'"
