Bonds started his Major League career with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1986 and stayed in Pittsburgh for 7 seasons winning two MVP awards along the way. In 1993 he signed a free agent deal with the San Franciso Giants where he quickly became the face of the franchise and fan favourite to Giant fans.

The 25 year old centre fielder was toasted by teammate Dave Parker after the game saying “Here`s to Big E. The best I`ve ever seen.” Davis tried to downplay the record.  “I`m just trying to concentrate on what I have to do, swing at good pitches and make the pitchers give me something good to hit. The records are nice but nobody sets out to break the records. They just come.”

Despite only playing in 129 games, Davis would finish the 1987 season with a 293 average, 37 home runs, 100 RBI, 120 runs and 50 stolen bases in 484 at bats. He became the first player ever with 30 home runs and 50 steals in a season.
