    The all-time leader in home runs became the 49th face on the San Francisco Giants' Wall of Fame Saturday.

    Barry Bonds, the iconic, but controversial ballplayer was honored by his former team during a special induction ceremony.

    During his 22-year career in the big leagues, Bonds blasted 762 career home runs, captured the National League MVP award seven times, earned 14 All-Star squad selections and racked up eight Gold Glove awards. Despite his jam-packed list of accomplishments, Bonds has come under scrutiny for his connection to the era of performance-enhancing drug use in baseball.

    In front of a sea of orange and black Saturday, die-hard supporters of Bonds showered him with applause and loving words. He returned the favor.

    "I love you guys so much," he said on multiple occasions.

    Bonds last played for San Francisco in 2007. He has since returned to the organization as a special adviser.
