Bonds tested for steroids

Posted: September 28, 2004

Barry Bonds was randomly tested for steroids before San Francisco's game Friday night against Los Angeles.

All major-league players must undergo the testing.

"I'm glad this is finally happening," the Giants slugger told MLB.com. "They'll get the results and it will clear my name."

Meanwhile, the Giants fan who caught Bonds' 700th home run is being sued by another man who says he was the rightful owner of the ball.

According to a restraining order to be filed in state court today, Timothy Murphy said Steve Williams stole the historic blast from him during a melee in the bleachers at SBC Park on Sept. 17.

Williams said he found the ball at the bottom of the heap of people.

The Milwaukee Brewers have agreed to accept an offer from Los Angeles investor Mark L. Attanasio to buy the team from the family of commissioner Bud Selig.

The players' association filed a grievance seeking to overturn Anaheim's suspension without pay of leftfielder Jose Guillen for an outburst after being lifted for a pinch-runner.
