Three members of the 600 Home Run Club: Willie Mays, Hank Aaron & Barry Bonds

In honor of the 2002 Team Reunion coming up on July 1 we wanted to look back at some of the great moments during the 2002 season.   In the sixth inning of the game on August 9th Barry Bonds hit a 421-foot blast off of the Pirates Kip Wells for his 600th Career Home Run.  About a week later Hank Aaron, Willie Mays and Frank Robinson were  on hand to celebrate this feat and watch as Barry received his 2001 Babe Ruth Award.
