Sluggers and steroids

The week's news at a glance.

San Francisco

Federal investigators have been told that San Francisco Giants home-run king Barry Bonds and several other baseball stars received steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs, the San Francisco Chronicle reported this week. A Chronicle source said that Bonds got the drugs as far back as 2001, the year he set a single-season record with 73 home runs. Bonds and five other players, including New York Yankees sluggers Jason Giambi and Gary Sheffield, allegedly got the drugs from Bonds’ personal trainer, Greg Anderson, who was indicted last year on steroid conspiracy charges. Bonds, Giambi, and Sheffield have all denied using steroids. “I’m tired of all these games,” Bonds said.
