Barry Bonds was a professional baseball player for Major League Baseball. He played for 22 seasons.
Barry Lamar Bonds was born in Riverside California on July 24, 1964. He is the son of former major league player Bobby Bonds. He played varsity baseball in high school and was named an All-American. He had a .467 batting average his senior year.
Bonds was drafted by the Giants coming out of high school. However, because he was unable to reach an agreement with them, he opted to go to college instead of turning pro, deciding to go to Arizona State University. As a freshman, he had 30 stolen bases and he batted .360. As a sophomore, he had a .368 batting average with 23 home runs with 66 RBIs and he was named an All-American. As a senior playing for the Sun Devils, he was named Most Valuable Player and he graduated with a degree in criminology.
He was again drafted in the 1985 Major League Baseball draft, this time in the sixth position by the Pittsburgh Pirates. He played in the minor leagues for the Prince William Pirates of the Carolina League and the Hawaii Islanders of the Pacific Coast League.
Bonds was called up to the major leagues and made his debut for the Pirates on May 30, 1986. In his rookie season, he greatly increased fan morale and ticket sales and recorded 16 home runs, 48 RBI, 36 stolen bases, and 65 walks.
The next year, the Pirates set an attendance record for their home opener. That season, Bonds hit 25 home runs, had 32 stolen bases, and 59 RBIs. The following season he hit for .283 with 24 home runs, all the while the team continued to set new records for attendance and fan participation (such as merchandise sales).
In 1990, Bonds was named Major League Baseball Most Valuable Player. That year he hit .301 with 33 home runs, as well as 114 RBIs and 52 stolen bases. He won the Silver Slugger and Golden Glove awards that year as well. The team won the National League East title but wasn’t able to make it deep into the playoffs.
In the following season, he had 25 homers, 116 RBI, and won another pair of Silver Slugger and Golden Glove awards. Bonds was second in MVP voting that season, almost winning the title a second time. In 1992, he did win his second Major League Baseball Most Valuable Player Award while hitting .311 with 34 homers and 103 RBIs only to see his team lose in the seventh game of the National League Championship Series.
As a free agent after that season, Bonds signed a new deal with the San Francisco Giants where he would play from 1993 until 2007. His contract was worth almost $50 million, which was staggering at that time. He won his second consecutive and third overall Major League Baseball Most Valuable Player Award in his first season with the Giants, while recording 46 home runs and 123 RBI.
The 1994–95 Major League Baseball strike shortened the following season, but Bonds still recorded 37 home runs and 74 walks while hitting .312. In 1995, he had 104 home runs with 104 RBI and hit for .294, however, he finished 12th in the MVP race. In 1996, he became the second player in history to ever have 40 home runs and steal 40 bases in the same season. His father had been just one home run short of making that list in 1973. Bonds also recorded a .308 average with 129 RBI in 1996. In 1997, he had 40 home runs with 145 walks and hit for .291 with 101 RBI. He tied his father for most 30–30 seasons that year. He hit his 400th career home run during the 1998 season, totaling over 400 home runs and 400 stolen bases in an individual career
Bonds signed a $90 million contract with the Giants in 2002. He had a few more successful seasons with the team before eventually retiring.
