Infamous player Barry Bonds put on a Giant’s uniform for the first time since 2007. However, this year Bonds dawned the threads as a hitting instructor, not a player.
Bonds had a very individualized coached style. His goal was to make sure that every player was comfortable with where they were as a hitter. So, for one week the Giants not only got to pick the brain of one of the greatest hitters to play the game, they also received one-on-one instruction from him, which Bonds prefers.
He was quoted in the San Jose Mercury News saying, “It was more trying to get each individual where he wanted to be comfortable. Picking my brain isn’t going to help you none.” So does this mean that San Francisco is going to be the best hitting team in the league this year? Maybe, but probably not.
