Bonds set to make a return to Pittsburgh

 

Barry Bonds will be back in Pittsburgh in mid-September as the Josh Gibson Foundation is set to honor the former outfielder.

‘Bonds will receive the 2015 Josh Gibson Lifetime Legacy Award from the Gibson Foundation and the Negro League. In 2001, the league also presented Bonds with the Josh Gibson Legacy Award, given to the league leaders in home runs,” according to the Pittsburgh-Post Gazette.

Bonds spent the first seven years of his career with the Pirates where he made two National League All-Star teams and won a pair of MVP awards.
