Growing up, Candlestick Park was my home away from home, and it is where my dad and godfather Willie played. For me to have played on the same field as them, wear the same uniform and now have my number retired, joining Willie and the other Giants legends is extremely special. Number 25 has meant a lot to me throughout my career and it is even more special that I got to share that with my dad."

The 53-year-old Bonds becomes the 12th player in New York and San Francisco Giants franchise history to receive the honor. He joins fellow San Francisco Giants Orlando Cepeda, Juan Marichal, Willie Mays, Willie McCovey and Gaylord Perry as players who've have his uniform number retired.

Bonds - MLB's all-time home run king - spent 15 seasons with the Giants from 1993-2007.

During his time in the Bay Area, Bonds hit 586 home runs, including a single-season record of 73 in 2001.
