Bonds to take curtain call at Davies Hall

Home run king Barry Bonds will wow San Francisco crowds one last time as he takes the stage Oct. 24 with radio station KGO host Ray Taliaferro for a conversation about everything from baseball to philanthropy.

The conversation is being hosted by the Commonwealth Club and will start at 7 p.m., according to the club. The program will run for around an hour and will cover a “gamut of topics,'' spokeswoman Riki Rafner said.

Bonds and Taliaferro will appear on stage together and hold an in-depth conversation about Bonds' time as a Giant, his personal life, any future work he plans to do with the Giants, and growing up in the Bay Area, Rafner said.

Bonds attended Junipero Serra High School in San Mateo while his father Bobby Bonds played for the San Francisco Giants. He was signed to the Giants in 1993 and broke the record for number of home runs in a single season with 73 in 2001.

Bonds' most recent accomplishment was breaking the all-time home run record Aug. 7 with his 756th home run. He is now the record holder having hit an impressive 762 home runs in his career.

There will be premiere seating available for the event, with seats closer to the stage, Rafner said. Attendees will be able to submit question cards throughout the event, which will then be passed to Taliaferro.

Bonds and Taliaferro will hold their conversation at Davies Symphony Hall, 201 Van Ness Ave., San Francisco.
