Major Leagues: Bonds wants to find a team
Barry Bonds is open to making a comeback. Whether any team wants him, that’s the tricky part.
Now that Bonds’ federal trial has been delayed at least until July, the agent for baseball’s home run king plans to contact all 30 major league clubs once again to determine whether there’s a place for the slugger.
The 44-year-old Bonds last played in 2007 with the San Francisco Giants. The Tampa Bay Rays toyed with the idea of signing Bonds for 2008, but he sat out while under indictment for lying to a federal grand jury when he testified he never knowingly used performance-enhancing drugs. Bonds has pleaded not guilty.
A seven-time NL MVP, Bonds has 762 career home runs, Bonds is healthy and ready to play, his agent, Jeff Borris said.
