Barry Bonds Celebriduck
Barry Lamar Bonds was born on July 24, 1964, in Riverside, California, where his father Bobby Bonds and current Giants Manager Dusty Baker were also born. His childhood was strongly influenced by several great major league baseball players; his father Bobby was once an All Star, he is the cousin of Reggie Jackson and his godfather is Willie Mays. Bobby Bonds played for the Giants until Barry was about 10 years old. Barry grew up and around Candlestick Park, the Giants' home field. While the team warmed up for games, Barry got to practice in the outfield.
When he was a kid, Barry could hit a whiffle ball hard enough to shatter glass. When he started hitting baseballs, no window was safe. He broke so many windows at his house that his mom, Pat, became a regular customer at a nearby glass store. Barry started his habit of choking up on the bat when he was young. His father used to bring home major league bats for his son to play with. The bats were so big and heavy that Barry had to choke up when he swung. To this very day, Barry still chokes up on the bat.
Bonds attended Serra High School in San Mateo. There, he was a three sport athlete in baseball, football, and basketball. However, despite showing his athleticism and versatility by participating in three sports, baseball was still Barry's true love.
