MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Home run king Hank Aaron says he's not about to stand back and watch Barry Bonds break his record of 755 career home runs.

In fact, he says he hardly knows who the San Francisco Giants slugger is.

Speaking today at Miller Park, Aaron said he doesn't have any thoughts on Barry Bonds and joked he doesn't even know how to spell his name.

The famed former Milwaukee Brewer visited the spot today where his 755th and final home run landed more than 30 years ago.

A professor and students from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee mapped out where the home run hit at the old County Stadium.

Today, the Brewers unveiled a plaque that marks the spot where the all-time major league career record was set.

Aaron says he didn't know at the time it would be his last major league home run.

But he says he was glad it was at home, in Milwaukee, and not out on the road.

Bonds is nine homers away from shattering the record.
