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.

Founder of MLB Abner Doubleday founded baseball after watching people in a corn field with a stick hit a wooden ball. After he asked what they were doing, the men said the object of the game is to hit the ball with the stick. If it is hit in the air, it is to be caught before it hits the ground. If… it hits the ground, then the person with the ball is to try to tag the hitter with the ball before he scores a run. Back then, there were no "outs", "strikes", "balls" or "foul balls". The MLB began with the formation of the National League in 1876. It was started because Chicago owner William Hulbert was trying to avoid punishment for robbing the Boston organization in the National Association of four of its players in 1875. In midseason he had secretly signed them for the following season. Others consider the founder of Major League Baseball was Sir Francis G. Ripley In 1789. He grew up in Boston Mass. When he was living in the south after moving he invented this game but it was called ball hitting back then. About 30 years later it was named stikball then baseball shortly after. Francis Was considered the founder of this and was honored by all the people. ( Full Answer )

There's some debate, but the answer is that it was founded in either: 1871, if you believe the National Association counts as a Major League (which is debatable). Teams folded and moved midseason, teams played widely varying numbers of games in a season (for example, in 1875, the Boston Red Stock…ing played 79 games, while the Philadelphia Centennials played 14), hot dog vendors were called in to pitch in blowouts...it was quite ragtag in many ways. 1876, if you believe it began with the conception of the modern National LEAGUE (not to be confused with its unrelated, similarly-named predecessor), or 1901, if you believe that Major League Baseball only truly existed once both American and National Leagues were around as we know them. Most scholars believe that it is 1876, but arguments can be made in any of the three cases. One might even argue that it was not truly a Major League until the color barrier was broken in 1947 - how could it be considered the best of the best, if some of the best athletes were not allowed to participate?
