Bonds Cheered At NLCS Pregame Ceremony

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Home run king Barry Bonds had his own little place in this NL championship series.

The former San Francisco slugger – looking fit and trim while wearing his old No. 25 jersey – was introduced before Tuesday’s Game 3 against Philadelphia. He joined ex-Giants J.T. Snow, Robb Nen and Shawon Dunston in throwing out ceremonial first balls.

Bonds did jumping jacks in the dugout before running onto the field. He raised his arms and tipped his cap to the fans at AT&T Park. He was greeted with loud cheers, with a few boos mixed in. Bonds then sat in the front row with Giants managing partner Bill Neukom.

The 46-year-old Bonds never announced his retirement. The seven-time NL MVP last played in 2007 and hit 762 career home runs.
