Slugger subpoenaed

The week's news at a glance.

San Francisco

San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds, who hit a record 73 home runs two years ago, has been subpoenaed by a federal grand jury investigating whether a “nutritional supplement” company was actually selling steroids, testosterone, and human growth hormone. Local and federal agents found vials of those three substances in a raid on the supplement company, called BALCO, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. The home of Bonds’ personal trainer, Greg Anderson, was also searched, the newspaper said. Bonds, who gained 40 pounds of muscle before turning into the game’s most feared slugger, has long denied rumors that he bulked up with the aid of steroids. Some 40 athletes have been subpoenaed in the investigation, including New York Yankees star Jason Giambi.
