Here’s what Bud Selig had to say tonight:
Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig issued the following statement tonight after Barry Bonds set the career home run record:
“I congratulate Barry Bonds for establishing a new, career home run record. Barry’s achievement is noteworthy and remarkable.
“After Barry came out of the game, I congratulated him by telephone and had MLB Executive Vice President Jimmie Lee Solomon and Hall of Famer Frank Robinson Ã¢â‚¬â€œ both of whom were at the game and witnessed the record-breaking home run Ã¢â‚¬â€œ meet with him on my behalf.
“While the issues which have
swirled around this record will continue to work themselves toward resolution, today is a day for congratulations on a truly remarkable achievement.”
