The 2001 baseball season saw Barry Bonds of the San Francisco Giants break the greatest record in sports - the single-season home run record previously held by Babe Ruth, Roger Maris, and Mark McGwire. In the process of becoming the game's first-ever four-time Most Valuable Player, Bonds may have had the greatest season in baseball history. There is no doubt that for most fans Barry Bonds is a man of mystery. However, despite being a misunderstood superstar who has long engaged in a running feud with the media, Bonds broke new ground in 2001 by maturing into an elder statesman of baseball. In "Barry Bonds: Baseball's Superman," author Steven Travers documents the superstar's 2001 campaign as he defied the very bounds of conventional logic and turned the art of longball hitting into his personal art form.
This is a comprehensive biography of the man currently considered by many people to be the greatest athlete in the world. Travers' book also describes Bonds' childhood in Riverside, California, the hometown of his father Bobby; his successful high school years in the Bay Area; and his All-American career at Arizona State University. As Barry Bonds embarks on even more milestones - 3,000 career hits, 755 home runs, a World Series championship - he may one day be thought of as the greatest baseball player of all-time. "Barry Bonds: Baseball's Superman" promises to delve into the intensely private, proud mind and ego of a man who understands baseball history and his place in it.
