Under the clouds and the summer sun the excitement in no way fails, the craze never stops and the fun on no account ends. The National Pastime's roots can be traced as early as the 18th century, the sensation still continues and marks its own way to the heart and soul of everyone.
Who doesn't know Baby Ruth? His legendary sixty home runs in 1972 was a phenomenon, until a superhero in the name of Roger Maris in 1961 slammed sixty one and Mark McGwire on his way to stardom battered his seventy in 1998. Moreover, on the 7th day of October, 2001 in San Francisco PacBell Park, the out of the ordinary Barry Bonds knocked the door to account as he hit his way to seventy three which ruptured the records and put another story on the History of Baseball.

Alex Popov claim that he was the first one to seize the ball but because of scuffling and skirmish fans it end up on the gloves of Patrick Hayashi. By this it is manifested that sportsmanship which is initially learned in playing and watching sport is disregarded.
