MLB: The pitcher who humiliated and was the ‘nemesis’ of Barry Bonds in his career

Barry bonds is recognized for having been one of the players with one of the most lethal bats of all the Big leagues. However, there is a pitcher who achieved what few and ‘humiliated’ Bonds throughout his MLB career and ended up becoming his nemesis. Is about Paul assenmacher. Here we tell you about it.

Paul Assenmacher was a Major League Baseball (MLB) pitcher for 14 years, but one of his greatest accomplishments on the mound came in front of one of the most ‘lethal’ hitters. Barry Bonds.

Assenmacher has gone down in history for being the pitcher who struck out the slugger 12 times and for getting Bonds to hit him for a poor average of just .135, something unusual for him.

Paul Assenmacher was in the Major Leagues in 1986, the year in which he debuted with the Atlanta Braves; until 1999, the last time he saw action on the mound wearing the uniform of the now Cleveland Guardians.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from minute one and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
