Barry Bonds holds the record for hitting the most home runs in Major League Baseball history with 762, and now the San Francisco Giants will recognize his career by retiring his No. 25 jersey during the 2018 season. The Giants said on Tuesday that they will retire the number on Aug. 11, when they are scheduled to play the Pittsburgh Pirates at AT&T Park. Bonds said in a statement: “I’m both honored and humbled that the Giants are going to retire my number this season. As I’ve always said, the Giants and Giants fans are a part of my family.” Bonds spent the first seven seasons of his career with the Pittsburgh Pirates before the Giants signed him heading into the 1993 season. He played 15 years in San Francisco, hitting 586 of his career home runs and setting the record for most long balls in a single season. Bonds was a seven-time National League MVP, an eight-time Gold Glover, a 12-time Silver Slugger, two-time batting champion and 14-time All-Star while playing for Pittsburgh and San Francisco.
