SAN FRANCISCO -- Barry Bonds is once again represented on the walls of AT&T Park. In late April, it was discovered that a plaque commemorating Bonds' 756th home run had gone missing, but a new plaque has been bolted to the brick wall beyond the fence in right-center field.

A team official said Saturday that the Giants are still unsure what happened to the original.

The orange plaque is emblazoned with the number "756" and celebrates Bonds' Major League Baseball record for career home runs. Bonds broke Hank Aaron's mark on Aug. 7, 2007, at AT&T Park. Bonds finished with 762 home runs and has not played since the 2007 season.

Bonds, embroiled in performance-enhancing drug controversy late in his career, has appeared at AT&T Park several times in recent years and attended a few games last year as a fan. He did not show up on the team's first homestand, when National League MVP Buster Posey was honored during a ceremony featuring past Giants MVPs.
