Last night, Barry hit his 669th "home run" of his career. Looks like the fan reached over to catch the ball and Bonds was given the homer. I saw the clip, I personally don't think it was a homerun.

You?

No, I only saw it once, but I thought I saw the fan miss it and it hit the wall. It was a close call though.

We as Yankees fans should just give any team not playing against us the benefit of the doubt in a situation like this. :cool:

I too only saw it once, but it clearly appeared a fan reached over the wall to try and catch it. It was not a HR.

Ditto. Jeffrey Maier already patented the take-away home run without fan interference.

I was going to start a thread on this but never did. I seen it live with mutiple angle replays and it was NOT a homerun. I don't understand why the Giants don't either put security or a railling up like the Yanks did in right field. Last year or the year before a fan reached over and did the same thing only problem it was against the Giants. The most assine thing about it was the fan threw the ball back on the field as everybody seems to do when the opposition hits a HR. This year the Giants will need every game they can get and one of these days it will cost them a game, and they will have nobody to blame but themselves.

I didn't watch the game, don't know the score, don't know how the HR affected the game...was it close? Why is this such a big issue?

I can understand the Game 1 situation in '96 but what affect did this have??

Most of Bonds' homeruns are so long they should count as two anyway. He deserves a cheapy every now and then.

That's exactly what I was thinking.

In the box score it looks like it cleared the wall just fine. That's what counts. :cool:

WOWZA!! After two walks in the bottom of the ninth, Grissom came up and singled both in to tie it 2-2 with the Rockies. Bonds comes up... you know the rest. :) 671! :gulp:

He just hit a Walkoff 2 Run HR to beat the Rockies 4-2 that was also close to a fan interfering. It might have been at the top of the wall and he grabbed it. tough to tell

You must have seen the bad angles, the one showed on FSN during the end game replays shows it a good 2-3 feet over the wall.
