Despite physical and emotional pain, Barry Bonds keeps swinging away -- not for the sake of history or even a ring, but to honor the men who got him here.
"I've played most of the season with a hamstring tear," Barry Bonds says. "My knees ache. My hands are done. Two bulging disks. My legs don't work. I make a strong throw, I feel it, all over, the rest of the game. Willie and my dad always said the thing that knocked them out of baseball would knock me out, too -- when the pain became too much."
