MLB: Bonds set to make appearance at ballpark in April


Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO Barry Bonds is scheduled to return to AT&T Park in April when the San Francisco Giants honor the 10th anniversary of their 2000 NL West championship team.

The Giants announced Wednesday that Bonds is one of several players scheduled to take part in a pregame ceremony on April 11.

Bonds has made only a handful of public appearances in San Francisco since the Giants decided not to bring him back following the 2007 season.

The ceremony is among the events to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the downtown waterfront ballpark. Bonds has provided many of the signature moments, including setting the season home record of 73 in 2001 and breaking Hank Aaron's career record of 755 in 2007.

Bonds finished with 762 homers.
