It was quite a batting practice show by Bonds, who by actual count -- (and you thought this wasn't hard work?) -- hit 13 of 21 BP tosses out of park, to the delight of all the young fans on hand to cheer their hero on tonight.

This includes one young guy recognized as an Ocean City High graduate who could play a little point guard there. He's in the left field bleachers wearing a sumo wrestler's suit with a sign saying "San Francisco Barry," and another guy with him, skinny as a rail, is wearing a sign saying "Pittsburgh Barry."

But enough frivolity ... the game just started. And of course Gavin Floyd has already given up a home run to Omar Vizquel, and now ... pop goes Barry Bonds, out on the first pitch to him thrown by Floyd.

A nice pop fly to Bobby Abreu, with the crowd booing when he came up and cheering when he went down...

The boos continue as Barry trots out to left, and he seems to be looking at the turf behind him, perhaps in search of plastic syringes, which was the favored choice of San Diego fans on Opening Day.

Bonds is really hearing it out there from the bleacher bums in left.

How much do you think Chase Utley's and Omar Vizquel's home run balls are worth?

And Ryan Howard's

Which Howard home run ball do you mean?
