Aug. 7, 2007 – Barry Bonds Hits Record 756th Home Run amid Speculation of Steroid Use

Barry Bonds hits his 756th home run at the age of 43 on Aug. 7, 2007, passing Hank Aaron’s major-league career record. Referencing talk of his suspected steroid use, Bonds tells reporters, “This record is not tainted at all. At all. Period. You guys can say whatever you want.”

Bonds passed drug tests administered by MLB, but his connection to BALCO and evidence that arose in the 2003 BALCO investigation, lead to speculation that Bonds had taken steroids.
