Someone should check and see if maybe Ken Burns was in San Francisco over the weekend.
The plaque commemorating Barry Bonds’ record 756th big-league home run was stolen from AT&T Park, the Giants admitted Tuesday.
Team spokesperson Staci Slaughter said the Giants are planning to replace the plaque, which was located inside the ballpark near the flag court area in right-center field (it would have been on the left side of the displayed picture).
“We’re in the process of replacing it,” Slaughter said. “We’re not sure what happened. We’re reviewing video, but haven’t found anything yet.”
Bonds’ broke Hank Aaron’s record of 755 homers in 2007, finishing his career that year with 762.
Bonds’ Hall of Fame plaque is also known to be missing, courtesy of about 360 BBWAA members.
