Marlins’ Marcell Ozuna blossoms into All-Star starter under continued mentorship of Barry Bonds - Sun Sentinel

“He was my project when I went there,” Bonds said Saturday in San Francisco. “[Loria] said, ‘He’s yours.’ I said, ‘I guarantee you he won’t get worse.’”

Bonds made good on that promise last year with his work with Ozuna, who made the 2016 All-Star team as a reserve. And Bonds has continued that mentorship from a distance this year, speaking regularly with the Marlins’ left fielder, who will start for the National League in the All-Star Game Tuesday night at Marlins Park.

Barry Bonds, Pac-Man and the greatest baseball fun fact of all time

Baseball’s greatest fun fact was born in three stages: on the last day of the first half of the 2004 season, on the last day of the 2004 season and, many years later, when a young man was kicking stones along the river bank and discovered it half-buried by mud and shrubs. It is one part record, one part curiosity and one part magic trick. Fittingly, it concerns Barry Bonds, and as a scholar of Barry Bonds fun facts, it is my opinion that it will never be topped.
