    (AP) PHILADELPHIA -- Barry Bonds is heading home, one behind the Babe. Bonds hit his 713th homer Sunday night, moving within one of tying Babe Ruth for second place on baseball's career list. The San Francisco Giants' slugger hit a mammoth shot in the sixth inning off Philadelphia right-hander Jon Lieber, sending a 2-1 pitch off the facade of the right-field upper deck during a 9-5 loss to the Phillies. "They tell me that's the way the Babe used to hit them," Giants manager Felipe Alou said. Bonds' fifth homer of the season was estimated at 450 feet, one of...

    Faced with the most damning, deeply sourced, comprehensive and chilling charges against Barry Bonds yet, courtesy of a new book by the San Francisco Chronicle reporters who have been on him from the start, decision day is here for Bonds, for baseball and for the San Francisco Giants. In the crushing new investigative book "Game of Shadows" (an excerpt appears in the March 13 issue of Sports Illustrated), authors Mark Fainaru-Wada and Lance Williams use extensive interviews, grand jury testimony, secret documents and mountains of evidence to show in painstaking detail, not just that Bonds used performance-enhancing drugs to become...

    Bonds was a Brave for a day New Schuerholz book contains plenty of insider tidbits By DAVID O'BRIEN The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Published on: 03/09/06 St. Petersburg, Fla. — Barry Bonds was a Brave for one night in 1992, Tom Glavine was ready to back out of a free-agent deal with the Mets and stay with the Braves in 2002 and Deion Sanders only used the Braves to demonstrate his athletic prowess. Those are among the revelations in a surprisingly candid book by Braves general manager John Schuerholz. "Built to Win" is due to arrive in stores next week. "It's not...

    Bill Romanowski used steroids and human growth hormone supplied by Victor Conte, the former NFL linebacker tells CBS' 60 Minutes in an interview to be broadcast Sunday. Romanowski said he took illegal steroids for a two-year period starting in 2001 and got them from Conte, the former head of the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative, which has been at the center of a steroids controversy in several sports.... Last May, he agreed to pay former Raiders teammate Marcus Williams $415,000 in damages for a hit to the face during a practice drill in 2003. Williams' career ended after his eye socket...

    Bonds, Alou lift Giants to win with home runs apiece Wednesday, September 21, 2005 By HOWARD FENDRICH Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON -- Barry Bonds saw the paper asterisks fans waved at him. He heard the boos and insults. And when Bonds rounded the bases after hitting an upper-deck homer in his 2005 road debut, he stepped on home plate, pointed to the sky with two fingers as he always does, then put a finger over his lips as if to say, "Shhhhhh!" On a night filled with subplots and drama befitting a September game between clubs clinging to faint playoff...

    Barry Bonds had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in January. He's still out. Gives a man time to think, a long leave of absence like that. About his life. About his career. About whether it makes sense to come back at all. Crazy talk? Well, sure, but tell me what about Barry's recent behavior has been particularly bright.

    SAN FRANCISCO -- Barry Bonds doesn't expect to play again this season because of his injured right knee, putting the San Francisco slugger's quest for the career home run record on hold. "I don't think you're going to see me out there this year," Bonds told MLB.com on Monday. "That's the reality of the situation. I'm improving. I'm happy with the progress. I'm working out hard on the exercise bike and the elliptical machine, but I'm just not there yet. The last thing I want is to get back on the field and be out again a week later." Bonds...

    Former Oakland Raiders linebacker Bill Romanowski will pay $415,000 to ex-teammate Marcus Williams, whom he punched in the face during a practice, attorneys said Friday. An Alameda County jury ruled in March that Romanowski, 38, should pay Williams $340,000 in lost wages and medical expenses for the incident two years ago. But Williams, who had sought millions of dollars in damages, was seeking a new trial — despite announcing after the verdict the case was not about money but proving what was right and wrong in football. “We’re delighted to have settled the case,” said Romanowski attorney Jeffrey Springer of...

    DENVER (AP) -- Bill Romanowski says he stayed one step ahead of the NFL's drug policy during his 16-year career, always taking nutritional supplements that the league had not yet banned. "As soon as they found out that something could be tested for, I stopped taking it. I didn't want that embarrassment, but I pushed that envelope ethically and morally because if I could take something that would help me perform better and it wasn't on the list, I was going to take it," Romanowski said in an interview published Tuesday in the Rocky Mountain News. "I had two criteria:...
