anyone remember when Ron Gant last year or two years ago ripped a 102 MPH bullet(off of the Sosa guy for tampa? i do believe) just over the left field wall for a HR?, he has one hell of a quick bat also

Saw Julio Franco pull a several 100mph fastballs, deep and foul in the same at bat just a few days ago.


Sorry to bust your bubble, but did he hit them 50 FEET FOUL, AND ABOUT 450 LONG? I dont think so.

And did he then turn around and blast a HR? Probably not.

He won the game, which can't be said for Barry......

I'm sure it's happened plenty of times, and if you hit a pitch that fast it's gonna go really far no matter what, as long as you get it elevated. It was awesome, but definately not the first time. As somebody said, Franco pretty much did it a few days ago.....but I hate to burst your bubble :-D

And wouldn't that be something if Gagne's save streak was ended off a Bonds HR? If only Milton Bradley hit one less ground out resulting in Dave Roberts scoring.........

Are you guys actually excited about a foul ball? I don't care how fast it was or where it was located a foul ball is a foul ball. After he hit it did they have an on field ceremony in praise of Barry? I really can't believe anyone here would actually make a post about a freakin foul ball. :-t

Seems Felipe was impressed too .. :-)

Giants manager Felipe Alou called Gagne's home run pitch Friday night to Barry Bonds "unhittable." Alou was still amazed at the confrontation between Gagne and Bonds. "Especially that time of the night, in the ninth inning; that's a heck of an at-bat," Alou said. "He threw 100 mph. I appreciate seeing that." Gagne was the 392nd pitcher to give up a homer to Bonds, and the 14th Cy Young Award winner.
