One of the biggest moments came in the first inning, when, with two outs, Barry Bonds sent what appeared to be a towering home run to right-center field. Hunter, who had built a reputation for his outfield thievery (Wall Climb (baseball)) in the American League, jumped and caught the ball over the wall (accomplishing a personal goal he set of robbing one from Bonds). He was playfully lifted by Bonds en route to the dugout to show congratulations for Hunter's defensive play. thumb 1915 magazine ad (File:Palmolive1915.jpg) In Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the B.J.
