Barry Bonds Visits Children’s Hospital, World Redemption Tour Continues
Barry Bonds continues to make the most of his days as a free man as he awaits a hearing in his continuing perjury case. Two months ago we informed you that Bonds visited Bryan Stow and his family at a hospital in LA. We were more blown away when it was revealed Bonds set up college scholarships for Stow’s children. Apparently the guy enjoys spending his free time at hospitals, because in addition to catching a Giants game during the week, he visited the Benioff Children’s Hospital at UCSF.
“Through Barry’s generosity, our playroom has been completely renovated and is one of the most popular spaces in the hospital,” Kimberly Scurr, the interim executive director of UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital said. “A frequent visitor to the hospital, Barry has developed close ties with our kids, families and staff over the years, and has put smiles on the faces of many young patients.”
Bonds donated funds to renovate it to renovate the children’s playroom at the hospital in 2009 and it was named after him, so he’s been involved with the center for a few years. Normally we don’t cover events like this, but this is Barry Bonds we’re talking about. He was considered one of the biggest jerks in the game when he played but he really appears to have changed since retiring and we’re trying to recognize it.
