San Francisco Giants Distance Themselves From Barry Bonds

Saturday, March 29, 2008

Last year, baseball fans packed San Francisco's stadium to watch Barry Bonds eclipse the all-time major league homerun record. This year, it's a different story -- Bonds will not be re-signed, the team says.

Also, the Giants are removing traces of Bonds' memory from their ballpark. Prominent tributes to his accomplishments have been taken down as Bonds gets ready to fight allegations that he abused steroids and committed perjury.

Bonds' trial is expected to drag out for months. Meanwhile, an image of the outfielder chasing Hank Aaron for the all-time homerun record has been taken off the left-field wall. The team president says the Giants are going in a new direction.
