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.
