Description

This baseball biography vividly chronicles the life of the MLB legend who broke records and boundaries over the course of his long and storied career.
 
Universally acknowledged as one of the greatest baseball players of all time, Barry Bonds was the game’s first four-time Most Valuable Player. In 2001, he broke one of the greatest record in all of sports, the all-time single-season home run record held over the years by Babe Ruth, Roger Maris and Mark McGwire. Some even argue that he had the greatest season in baseball history. Yet for all his celebrated achievements, Bonds remains a man of mystery to many of his fans.
 
In Barry Bonds: Baseball’s Superman, author Steven Travers documents the superstar's 2001 campaign as he defied the laws of physics and perfected the art of long-ball hitting. Travers also describes Bonds's childhood in Riverside, California, his successful high school career in the Bay Area, and his All-American career at Arizona State.
