Powerful Image 4/4/06

I am guessing that it is because I live in a coutry where baseball is a relatively minor sport but I fail to see what is so powerful about the image.

Is there some background to the picture or the featured player that makes the pic powerful, or is it just some dude playing ball and throwing his hands in the air?

It is Barry Bonds. He is on track to break Hank Aarons home run record this year. He just hit a HR in the picture.

There is also a book that just came out that details his alleged juicing.

It is big news here in the US and today was opening day of baseball season so it is a very appropriate image for this site.

Thank you sir! It makes much more sense to me now.
