FREDERICK, Md. -- Potomac Nationals first baseman Brett McMillan sat by himself in a hotel room at the Frederick Comfort Inn and watched Barry Bonds, after breaking Hank Aaron's home run record, raise his arms to the sky in honor of his late father.
It was an emotional moment for both players, though they were separated by 3,000 miles. As players, they are even further apart. But both have lost their baseball fathers and the chance to share their triumphs with them.
