SAN DIEGO (AP) - Adam Hughes set his prized possession on the table for everyone to see—Barry Bonds' record-tying home run ball, already safely encased in an acrylic box.

"It was pretty neat to be part of history," said Hughes, a 33-year-old plumber from the city's La Jolla section. "I'll have something to tell my kids."

Hughes became an instant celebrity Saturday night when he scooped up Bonds' No. 755, which tied the San Francisco Giants' slugger with Hank Aaron as baseball's most prolific home run hitter.

"People were congratulating me," he said.
