Barry Bonds

Free to Swing

'Dangerous' Bats ... Again

2/7/2012 4:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0207_barry_bonds_tmz_exBarry Bonds has federal approval to pickup a "dangerous weapon" -- namely, a baseball bat -- thanks to a new court order.

Bonds is appealing his sentence for felony obstruction of justice -- but for now he's free on a few conditions ... one of which is he cannot possess any "firearm, ammunition, destructive device, or other dangerous weapon."

Barry must want to take some batting practice -- because according to docs filed yesterday ... a federal judge has approved his request to make an exception for baseball bats.

Anyone who saw Bonds slug one of his 762 home runs knows ... a bat (with or without a syringe) should be considered a dangerous weapon in his hands.

The FEDS wasted so much money with this steroid case. It is a joke as MLB and the player's union sold Bonds out to take the heat of the 104 players who tested postive for PED's in 2003.

Of course the NY media thinkS A-Rod is saint because he came clean after seeing Bonds's lynching. NY media and fans have forgiven A-Roid for using steroids, but they hold others to a higher standard. I bet we'd be shocked at the 104 names on that list. ANONYMOUS should get that information for us fans.

Love him or hate him, BB gave my friend's son (6 or 7 y.o.) his MLB Batting Title "trophy" bat the year he won it. The kid's father had an indoor batting range that BB would frequent and sign autographs for the kids there.
He was always kind and took time out of his indoor batting practice to encourage the kids there. I respect him for doing that.
