Did Barry Bonds get banned from Major League Baseball?
Barry Bond was never banned from baseball and he served as a special hitting instructor for the San Francisco Giants during Spring Training 2014, something that a player banned from baseball would be prohibited from doing. He also remains on the Hall-of-Fame ballot, an honor that he would not be eligible for if he had been banned from the game. While there has been a good deal of information made public concerning his use of performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) supplied by the Bay Area Laboratory Co-operative (BALCO), all documented use occurred prior to the time when Major League Baseball had a policy which tested for the use of such drugs and Bonds never failed a test during the years he played following the implementing of PED testing .
Though Bonds was not banned from baseball, he was unable to find a place to play for the 2008 season despite leading the National League in On-base Percentage, Walks and Intentional Walks in 2007 and hitting .276/.480/.565 with 26 home runs for the Giants. His agent believed that teams were colluding against Bonds because of the steroid allegations against him, but legal issues stemming from his indictment on charges of obstructing justice in the investigation of the BALCO scandal and the potential for a negative reaction from fans may also have played a part in teams' decisions to avoid the controversial slugger.
He did because he took steroids most of his career when he was with the san francisco giants which was the second team played for the first team he played for was the Pittsburgh pirates who haven't had a winning season since 1992 his last year with the pirates the only mlb team he did not take steroids with.
