San Francisco Giants closing in on 1000 home runs at AT&T Park.

The San Francisco Giants are close to an AT&T Park milestone – they’re 1000th home run at AT&T Park by Giants players.

After Pablo Sandoval’s bomb today, the Giants are just three home runs away from the milestone, with 997 home runs. H/T to McCovey Cove Dave for turning us on to this mark.

It’s possible they could accomplish the task during their next home stand against either the Arizona Diamondbacks or Los Angeles Dodgers.

160 of those 997 home runs came from none other than Barry Bonds. AT&T Park is well-known as a pitcher’s park, with the home team routinely finishing near the bottom of the NL in number of home runs hit at home. Of course, not having Bonds on the roster put a big dent into the home run totals as well.

But, given that the Giants only hit 31 home runs at AT&T Park in 2012 and went on the win the World Series, being able to hit home runs in the home park may not mean a whole lot in the long run.
