Bonds’ trial resumes with testimony about samples
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The testimony remained intimately personal for Barry Bonds as his trial resumed Tuesday.
Prosecutors called two witnesses to the stand to discuss the urine samples Bonds provided during the 2003 season. Prosecutors allege those samples tested positive for the designer steroid THG.
The two witnesses, Barry Sample, chief science officer of Quest Diagnostics, the company that analyzed Bonds‘ urine, and Dale Kennedy, who collected the sample, were necessary to establish that Bonds‘ samples were handled properly and can be used as evidence.
Tuesday morning was far less dramatic than the testimony of Bonds‘ former mistress Monday. Kimberly Bell testified that Bonds told her he used steroids and became verbally abusive toward her at the end of their nine-year relationship.
Former AL MVP Jason Giambi and his brother, Jeremy Giambi, are scheduled to testify later Tuesday. The brothers have both admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs they obtained from Bonds‘ personal trainer, Greg Anderson.
Other athletes who are on the government’s witness list include several former teammates of Bonds: Armando Rios, Benito Santiago, Bobby Estalella and Marvin Benard.
All the players except Jason Giambi, who is with the Colorado Rockies, have retired.
Bonds, MLB’s record-holder for home runs in a career (762) and a season (73), is accused of lying to a federal grand jury for testifying in 2003 that he never knowingly used performance-enhancing drugs.
